Re: Impossible to recover repository

Yes you're right. In my panic I thought directly that it had something
to do with the server. Other repositories worked correctly on this
client. Indeed even this particular repository worked with this client
some revisions ago.
Luckily for me, the problem with the failure "Can't recode String", is
discussed in the list just now. So I saw what went wrong.

The problem with recover is as you have suggested a problem with the
permissions.

Thanks to you and those who discussed the String recoding problem.
