Did you ever find out the cause of the corruption, though?

The words "data corruption" make us very nervous. When it turns out
to be bad RAM, we breathe a sigh of relief (though it would still be
nice if Subversion had some way to be more graceful about handling
such situations!).

However, if it wasn't bad RAM, the possibility exists that it was
Subversion itself...

Any new information?
