Re: Invalid prop-mod flag in rev-file

Thanks, Max. Zeroing out that md5sum let the svnlook tree command run,
but the dump still fails.

FYI, it looks like there's more corruption in the rev file than just
that one spot. In fact I've been able to find corruption in many of the
revision files.

I've restored a backup and done an incremental dump of the work that's
been done since then and combined the two. svnadmin verify says the
produce is ok, so at least I haven't lost any data.

I will need to figure out how all those rev files got corrupted, though,
but that's between me and the server ;)

Thanks again.
