Malformed XML error

After playing around with a few toy repositories, I imported my first
real one yesterday (3.7G). When I tried to checkout for the first
time, I got an error half-way through:

svn: Malformed XML: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 3

that is a pretty cryptic error message to me, does anybody have any
other clues? On this weg page-->
  <-- it looks like I'm getting this error because a binary file was
uploaded as a normal file when I imported and svn couldn't decode it
properly as I was checking out. If that's it, how do I fix that?
Otherwise, what could it be?

The file being downloaded was a .ppt (powerpoint) file (as were several
other files in the same directory which were imported and checked out
properly). If I do a svn cleanup I get the same error again. I'd
rather not check the whole repository in from scratch again because it
took about 10 hrs to import on my external USB1.0 hard drive.

I'm using svn, version 0.36.0 (r8282) on a stock RH9 machine, installed
via the RPMs.
