PS. I just ran through the process on one of my own repositories (one

BUT I forgot to mention: make a backup first! The file containing the
checkums is db/representations. Not sure if you need to backup other
files if you're simply going to modify 32 innocuous data bytes.

In my case the checksum occurred twice in the file. Not sure if that's
always the case. The checksum is stored as 16 binary bytes (not as 32
hex digits).

When this happened to me, the advice was to dump the file using the BDB
dump utility, edit it there, and then recreate the file. That didn't
work for me so I used a hex editor.
