Unfortunately I cannot recover from it so I consider it a little more serious. If I try to un-switch the parent (this example is after running the repro script):

~/tmp/svn-switch-test/wc> svn switch file:///home/julianfoad/tmp/svn-switch-test/repos/ .
/home/julianfoad/src/subversion/subversion/libsvn_fs/tree.c:454: (apr_err=160013)
svn: Filesystem has no item
svn: file not found: revision '1', path '/d/f'

If I try to update, or anything else I can think of, I get similar errors. Can you recover from it?
