I haven't tested, but I *think* a dump/reload should resolve it.

Run svnadmin dump on the repo and redirect to a file. Run svnadmin lod on
a new repo with input from the dump file. Save the old repo (IMPORTANT!)
and move the new repo into place.

Hmmm... I wonder how this file got truncated. It is written and moved into
place atomically.

Hope this helps,
