One more follow up question, I've restored the repository up to revision
13210, but whenever I try to access it from the working copy I get the error
"svn : Reference to non-existent revision '13211' in filesystem"
13211 is the lost revision, is there any way other than checking out a new
working copy to get back in sync?
