I have successfully recovered all your data (which was actually 357
revisions). I bet you can do it yourself by removing db/log.* and
running "db_recover -c" in the db directory. Since you've had problems
with the repository, I'd "svnadmin dump" the old repository and
"svnadmin load" it into a newly created repository.

If you're not successful, just let me know and I'll put the dumpfile
somewhere so you can download it.
