Have you tried dumping and loading your repository?

   $ mv repos repos.backup
   $ svnadmin dump repos.backup > dumpfile
   $ emacs dumpfile # replace all instances of your funky dirname with
                    # some non-funky dirname
   $ svnadmin create repos
   $ svnadmin load repos < dumpfile
   $ # copy over any hook scripts from repos.backup to repos
