I think I've hit a similar issue to you. A group that I work with are
using SVN and were seeing a similar error message I think. They could
narrow it down to a single file in a specific revision though. They
deleted that file from the repo, and re-added it. Every revision before or
since is fine.

When I check out that revision I get an error about:
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/adminable/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Can't read lengh line in file 'D:\svn\adminable\db\revs\7810'

Revision 7810 is the trouble revision...

I'm looking into this now to see what happened. You may want to check
versions prior to your latest to see if they're okay, and then maybe see if
a specific file in that version is the troublemaker.

Facts about the file we had issues with:
- binary
- requires 'lock'

This is running Subversion 1.3.1. We just updated. I wonder if it may be
a bug in 1.3.1. I'll post this to the Subvervion users list as well as it
doesn't seem to be TSVN specific.
