svn cleanup won't do you much good if you ran out of disk space on the
filesystem the repository lives on, it just cleans up the working copy,
it doesn't touch the repository at all. i imagine svnadmin recover
would be the way to go in such a case, but someone with more
filesystem-fu would be able to answer better.

I would also be interested in exactly how to do this.

Also, I believe you mentioned that you were using ra_local to access a
repository on a network drive, right? That's a really bad idea, as
berkeley db doesn't play nicely with networked filesystems, and bad
things are likely to happen as a result.
