Database corruption and svn dump

From: Mark Humphrey <msph_at_alyra.org>

First, I'm running on 0.14.1. I'm wanting to do the upgrade to 0.14.2, so I'm trying to dump my databases (svnadmin dump DB > DB.datastore). Two of them dumped perfectly, but the third has a nasty little problem with it.

It goes through trying to dump this problem database, and then gives me this problem:

* Dumped revision 7.

svn_error: #21069 : <Filesystem has no item>
  file not found: revision `7', path `Networks/tags/project2/msphnet.h'

So, something is wrong between versions 7 and 8 of the database. I've checked out version 7 and the file is not present, which is as it should be. I then checked out version 8, and the file and subdirectory (project2) have both appeared, also as it should be. I got no errors on either of those checkouts.

So, does anyone understand what this error indicates? And is there any way that I can either fix the error, or choose to ignore it?

If the answer is just that I should be patient and that I should wait for a more robust migration path, then I can do this. I was just hoping to stay up with the project as much as I could.
