'svnadmin recover' couldn't fix the repository?

Not sure what to say... there are a whole lot of svn users out there,
and many of them run svn on win32. But nobody has ever reported
anything like this before; crash-bugs are almost always detected early
and fixed instantaneously, so the "consistently crashing" behavior
you're reporting is really surprising to me.

Maybe a win32 developer (branko, or someone else?) can supply you some
debug builds so we can get a good backtrace.
