We had the same problem with a repository we converted from RCS.
Because it happened after so many revisions, i at first assumed
it was some scalability problem. Turned out it was binary
garbage in some of the log messages. The previous version
control system here was not RCS, but a pile of Perl goo with a
bizarrely broken user interface using RCS as a back-end. Hosed
log messages were very common...

Try svn propedit --revprop -r 4727 and see if there's anything
fishy in there.
