$ svn update -r 552

U XX\XX.dsp

$ svn update -r 551

svn: RA layer request failed

svn: GET of /svn/XX/!svn/ver/551/vss/MS10/XX/crt0.o: 500 Internal Server
Error (http://XXbuildmachine)

Our subversion database failed (right on a deadline of course), First
attempt to recover

the DB timed out (after 2 hours) and failed (This may have been an issue
with our server which is

a poor performer at the best of times).


For the second attempt at recovery I moved the repos to my local machine,

is nice and quick and recovered the DB in a about 3 seconds.


We appear to have more or less correct data, but this "sx4" error which

effectively stops us peering/rolling back any further than 559.


I DO have a "dumped" backup file that covers up to r550, but nothing

for r551 itself, and from the head I can only roll backwards to 559.


For now I've built a new Repository, but I'd like to recover the damaged
history from

the broken repository.


I'd welcome any suggestions. TIA.
