I tried this on both osx and linux, with each repository revision 1-5. On the
OS X box (db4.1, svn 0.20.1) revision 1 does show the entire tree's
directories, with output like:

/ <0.0.1>
 abiconvert/ <1.0.1>
   plugins/ <5b.0.1>

And so on. Checking out revision 1 fails though, saying the FS is corrupt.

However, all the other possible combinations yielded incomplete trees and an
error:

svn: Filesystem is corrupt
svn: svn_fs__rep_contents: checksum mismatch on rep "1b":

I would be happy to post a URL to a tarball of the broken repos, since the
project is open source. I suspect though that corruption like this might be
akin to feeding you /dev/random and asking for assitance.
