Out of interest, do we have any idea why these problems are occurring?
(Particular filesystems, distributions, versions of Subversion?).
Is it something that a broken client can cause?

One of FSFS's benefits is its write-only-ness. That should make it harder
for corruption to occur, but it doesn't help if we're we're writing a
corrupt revision in the first place!
