Recovering history after misconfiguring svnserve "anon-access = none"

Until today, I neglected to put the "anon-access = none" in the svnserve.conf file. However, I did have [/] @mygroup = rw in the authz file, so all of my previous access to the repository did require authentication.

While working on this during the last couple of days, I configured apache and svnserve to both serve the same repository, so I can simply toggle them on/off one at a time.

When I access the repository via http:// , everything works fine. And I can see the complete "log" history, including the usernames and comments for all the past commits.
When I access the repository via svn://, things are half-fine. I can do all my authenticated updates/commits etc, and I can see usernames/comments for commits that happened via either http:// or svn:// without the misconfiguration. But I cannot see the "log" history for any commits that happened while I was neglecting the "anon-access = none" This information is obviously present in the repository, as evidenced by the fact that it's visible via http://

So my question is ... How can I repair my repository, to make the log history accessible via svnserve? I would prefer to disable http and just run svnserve. But for now, apache is the only thing working right, so I've got to stick with http:// until I figure this out.

Thanks for your help, and FWIW I'm running the latest Collabnet subversion for windows.
