I tried the following:

# cd foo/db
# /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/bin/db_recover -c
db_recover: Ignoring log file: log.0000000002: magic number 0, not 40988
db_recover: Invalid log file: log.0000000002: Invalid argument
db_recover: First log record not found
db_recover: PANIC: Invalid argument
db_recover: DB_ENV->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database

At this point, I've given up. The repository was brand new (we just
switched to subversion on Monday) so starting over wasn't a big deal.
However, it is somewhat distressing that the database can't be fixed. I
was under the impression that the journalling was supposed to prevent
that... especially considering that the file system it's on is
journaled as well (Mac OS X Server with HFS+).
