Did you run 'svnadmin recover'?

'svnadmin verify' is equivalent to checking out (reading) every single
revision. If other read-operations fail, so will 'verify'.

I'm seeing a general trend: a lot of users seem to think 'verify' means
'read and repair'. It doesn't. It just means 'read'. Only the
'svnadmin recover' command does any repair.
