This is what I get in the end:

svnadmin verify subv
svn: Corrupt DB: revision 0 missing from 'revisions' table, in filesystem 'subv/db'

At least, that's a message i haven't seen before :). Is there's something I can do to fix that? db_recover doesn't work and svnadmin recover doesn't work. I put my repository up at http://www.henrikfrisk.com/documents/repos.tar.gz

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
