It seems that my repository was corrupted by a seemingly simple

  svn rename a/b/ c/b

All I wanted to do was move "b".

Now I get error messages like this:

% svn commit --message "attempt to fix common/graphics/buttons"
svn: Bogus URL
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Commit item 'C:/cygwin/home/Asha/hello/trunk/common/graphics/buttons/home.
X3D' has copy flag but no copyfrom url

This error was happening with another file, so I deleted the file,
and now I get error with this file. I decided I should get more info
rather than continue deleting files.

I tried running "svn cleanup" with version 0.15 and that didn't seem
to help. I uninstalled version 0.15, installed svn 0.23.0, did svn

What is going on, and how do I fix my repository?
