Oof, that's no good. This sounds like a problem in the database. In other
words, it sounds like something got horked here. Did you run 'svnadmin
recover' while Apache was up? Does 'svnadmin verify' complete successfully
on the repository?

You generally won't see transactions with that command. It's meant to show
you transactions that have failed, or were left lying around due to some
other failure.

I know I've seen several things regarding svn for Mac OS X. I believe David
Summers got fed up with fink, and I think has some binary Mac OS X on his
site. Check it out at:

The problem is that you have an invisible transaction, it's that one named
'7k' doesn't exist.

Can you say what you did that led up to this problem? If there is a bug, it
may help us to track down this problem.
