Our repository on svn.collab.net just suffered a similar fate.
'svnadmin recover' began its work and then returned DB_RUNRECOVERY.
Running db_recover gave more detailed (albeit useless to me) info:
"fatal region error detected". So, I still have no idea what caused

I did a Berkeley dump/load cycle to fix the problem -- quickest thing
I could think of. This little script should do a db_dump and db_load
inline for you (making backups of the old database tables).




echo "### Dumping and loading tables"
for i in changes \
         copies \
         nodes \
         revisions \
         strings \
         transactions \
         uuids; do
   echo -n "### [${i}] dumping..."
   ${DB_BINDIR}/db_dump -kp ${REPOS}/db/${i} > ${i}.dump
   echo -n "moving..."
   mv ${REPOS}/db/${i} ${REPOS}/db/${i}-backup
   echo -n "loading..."
   ${DB_BINDIR}/db_load ${REPOS}/db/${i} < ${i}.dump
   echo "done."
echo "### Recovering repository"
svnadmin recover ${REPOS}
