Since nobody replied and this is still sitting in my inbox...

Yes, it seems like a problem in svnsync (something somewhere must be
ignoring an error where it should be breaking out), but it seems
likely that nothing has gone overly wrong with your repository. If a
commit had really failed then the next commit would have errored out
because the revision numbers would be out of sync (i.e. commit to sync
revision N+1 would have resulted in the creation of revision N, which
svnsync checks for). Worst case scenario as far as I can see is that
maybe some revprops weren't copied over, in which case you can just
recopy them manually with the copy-revprops command.
