When this happens, Oracle Linux starts killing processes, trying to free memory. Once of the processes it killed was probably the process that was syncing the svn repository from the svn server. Thus the marker that svnsync leaves on r0 to indicate that a sync is in progress never got cleared, and had to be cleared manually to allow a new sync to start.

You should consider changing the apache configuration to not spawn so many processes ;-)
