John,

To follow-up on what Daniel asked: How exactly did svnadmin load fail?
 Did you actually get a segfault or did you get an error something
like this?

  1.6.2>svnadmin load ..\repositories\t1 < 131.dump

  <SNIP successful txn>

  ------- Committed revision 7 >>>

  <<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 8
       * editing path : A_COPY ...svnadmin: Dumpstream data appears to
be malformed

Or something else entirely?

Paul
