My initial analysis suggests that a write to the database logs is somehow
'getting lost', leaving the databases updated to a later version than there
are log records. BDB then reports this as "Invalid argument".

So, our question to you is:

Did anything unusual of any kind happen around the time the repos became
broken? Power failure? Unclean reboot? Svn process hung?

It is possible that nothing odd happened - there might be a bug in BDB.
