I have this error today - first one I've ever seen with SVN!


I was simply running update on a repo I checked out a while back (less
than 2 months), it's not had too many updates applied to it since then,
so it's not a massively used repo. I'm running the latest TortoiseSVN
(1.8.1) so I assume I have the latest svn too as Stefan is quite good at
keeping it updated.


TortoiseSVN 1.8.1, Build 24570 - 32 Bit , 2013/07/22 18:28:29

Subversion 1.8.1, -release

apr 1.4.8

apr-util 1.5.2

serf 1.3.0

OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013

zlib 1.2.8


I still have the wc.db but I'm not sure I can send it to you. I'm more
than happy to run sql commands against it if you want to let me know
what you'd be interested in.
