repository recovery?

Hi all --

I seem to be at a dead end. I'm having a problem with my subversion
repository. (I'm running it on a Mac.) It started after a recent reboot
(which hung, and required a hard-restart).

First, I got 500 Internal Server Errors when trying to check-in. The
server log said, "Berkeley DB error while checkpointing after Berkeley
DB transaction for filesystem /Volumes/Data/svnrepo/db:\nInvalid
argument [500, #160029]"

So, I google a bit and tried to recover the repository.

# svnadmin recover /Volumes/Data/svnrepo
Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...
subversion/libsvn_fs/bdb/bdb-err.c:51: (apr_err=160029)
svn: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery

The SVN Book doesn't really cover this. It sort of assumes that the
recovery will work. So, I googled a little bit, and... At this point
(this may not have been wise, I realize) I decided to copy over a
back-up of the repository, made about a month ago.

Now, when trying to interract with the database, I get this message:

$ svn update
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Reference to non-existent revision '231' in filesystem
'/Volumes/Data/svnrepo/db'

What now?
