Hard to say. The error means that the repository database has been damaged,
and somehow contains a reference to data which is not present.

First thing to try is 'svnadmin recover', though I don't think that will
help here.

Next, try making a *copy* of your repository, changing to the 'db'
subdirectory, and running 'db_recover -c'.

If that doesn't work, then the remaining options are a restory from backup,
possibly using the db/log.* files from the broken repository to bring the
backup repository up-to-date, or making Berkeley DB dumps of the repository
database available on a web/ftp server somewhere, and I will try to identify
and repair as much damage as is possible.
