This looks like a bug that Malcome Rowe and myself have been trying to track
down. What appears to be happening, is that an alternate handle to the rev
file is being opened and used, while the other is left dangling. When pool
cleanup time comes around, it flushes the remaining data in the buffer,
clobbering one of the text representations.

If you have the original repository handy, this is actually very easy to fix.
You can send me a private email if you need that done, but it looks like
you've already gotten back up and running using a different solution.
