I'm using SVN client on Fedora 17 at work and today it stopped working. Everything I do, even svn only or svn --version or whatever with SVN throws Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I've restarted the machine, reinstalled SVN (removed and installed again) but no luck. Can't find anything helpful online (only old version issues or problems with a specific SVN command) but this is for the entire client, every command.

Any tips on that?
