Erp. One of my repositories is exactly like this. I imported a
CVS repository into an existing svn repository, so it has many
revisions, then suddenly jumps back a few years and the next
thousand or so revisions move forward to the present and then the
rest of the revisions are normal. I have not had any problems
with this repository, and i think i've even dumped and restored
it once.

Aside from the obvious luser problem, is my repository actually
broken? I hope not...
