cd path/to/my_old_repository
cd ..
svnadmin create --fs-type=bdb a_new_repository
cd a_new_repository/db
rm *s __db.* log.*
cd ../../my_old_repository/db
for i in *s; do
  db_dump -r "$i" | db_load -h ../../a_new_repository/db "$i"
done
cd ../..
svnadmin recover a_new_repository
svnadmin verify a_new_repository

If that doesn't work, tarball your old repository and put it somewhere I can
examine it.

Max.
