devel/subversion: svn: Couldn't perform atomic initialization

Since two days now I realize on several recently ports-updated servers a 
failure of the subversion server running on those servers. Sneaking 
around the internet I found several issues exactly targeting this error 
with an sqlite 3.7.7/ issue, which has been fixed in 
sqlite- At this very moment, our subversion servers in question 
has all recently been updated and it seems, they all fail the same way. 
Does anyone also realize this behaviour shown below when commiting?

Is there a workaround? Any help or hint is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
