It does not appear that I have any files that begin with __DB.*, is
that normal?

Removing the log.* files seemed to fix the database restore, I was able
to do it using the svnadmin utility. As per your recommendation, I did
a dump on the repaired repository and then a load on a new repository.
Thank you very much for your help!

Have I lost anything be removing those log files? (there were two of
them, one was 1.0 Mb, and the other was 6.3 Kb).
