Well, if the log files are somehow corrupt, I'd recommend making a *copy* of
the repository, deleting the log files from the copy, and then running
recovery. If that works, create a new empty repository, dump/load the
history, copy across any hook scripts, and put the new repository back into

You probably want to migrate to FSFS once you upgrade to 1.1.x - we've seen
*far* too many of these mysterious problems with BDB on OS X.

Unsurprising, cleanup does not contact the repository.

Neither of the above seem likely to cause problems.
