Corrupted Berkeley DB - not recovering

From: <cjs_at_veracitydesigns.com>

Hello,

I'm under the assumption that one of my svn repositories is currently suffering
from the same problem detailed, and seemingly resolved, in the thread related
to this message:

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2004-11/0141.shtml

My symptoms have been pretty much identical.. randomly the repository became
inaccessible, ran svnadmin recover...

Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...

Recovery completed.
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening 'copies' table for filesystem
/home/svnroot/repos/db:
Invalid argument

So, next I ran db_recover, hoping that would fix the db....

db_recover: Finding last valid log LSN: file: 119 offset 702212
db_recover: Recovery starting from [1][28]
db_recover: Recovery complete at Sat Jan 29 17:33:36 2005
db_recover: Maximum transaction ID 800a8d2f Recovery checkpoint [119][702212]
db_recover: Recovery complete at Sat Jan 29 17:33:36 2005
db_recover: Maximum transaction id 80000000 Recovery checkpoint [119][702212]

DB remained inaccesible, tried svnadmin recover again....

Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...

Recovery completed.
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening 'copies' table for filesystem
/home/svnroot/repos/db:
Invalid argument

As best I can tell, this seems to be the identical problem that Yoann was
having. Unfortunately, I have no idea what Max Bowsher did to recover the
repository. Can anyone provide me with instructions or direction as to how I
can recover the DB?

Many thanks in advance.

BTW - running svn version 1.0.9 and compat-db 4.1.25
