OK, finally we found solution, the problem was that some directory has
two files:

1. SOMEFILE1.RC - modified from previous repository revision
2. somefile1.rc - added in the latest revision

booth files has the same contents - the only deifference was letter case
in names (for windows OS it was one file). Second file was added by
mistake/error in software clinet (probably Tortoise/Ankh). During
checkout there was mentioned error message:
"svn: In directory 'dir1'
svn: Can't copy 'dir1/.svn/tmp/text-base/somefile1.rc.svn-base' to
'dir1/somefile1.rc.tmp': The system cannot find the file specified."

running command:

svn delete url:..../somefile.rc

cased svn process hangs... so we:

svnadmin dump myrepository > dumpfile

and then

cat dumpfile | svndumpfilter exclude "......dir1/somefile.rc" | svnadmin
load myrepository2

(1 duplicated node was dumped)

That's it.

BTW me've moved from bdbfs to fsfs :-]
