Yet another datapoint, I dumped the repo, reorganized the
history with svndumptool to create no more than 100
directories per subdirectory and retested. A full
"svnadmin verify" of this modified repo with the
same number of revisions and total files only takes
6 minutes now instead of 40 hours.

Something in "svnadmin verify" doesn't appear to like
large directories...
