Ah, 'modify-entry' is a log command, IIRC. That looks like a problem
re-running the wc logs. (We use a system much like a journalled
filesystem for efficiency and correctness purposes; 'svn cleanup' just
does a log replay). It occurs to me that svn_time_from_cstring() will
return that error if you pass an empty string - I wonder if the problem
isn't that we have a badly-formatted date, but that we have no date at
all? (in the entries file, or in the log, perhaps).

Sure - we'd probably want any logs as well, so the whole .svn/ directory
(with the exception of .svn/text-base) would be best.
