Hey, Max,

Thanks a ton for the response. The repository is a commerical video
game project - we are making an online golf game called GoldenFairway
- the current version of which is at www.goldenfairway.com. The
repository and I are in Saint Louis, but we have remote team members
in Kansas, Pittsburg, NY, Asia, Oregon, and one travelling around the
world in a boat. The repository is several GB in size and we would
have been screwed without it. I got it back up late last night. I am
not sure if I could have supplied you with the repo.

Here is what I did to fix it (it took me all night to figure it out).
I erased the uuid table in the repo/db directory. Then from the home
directory, I ran "db_recover -c -h path/to/repo". Finally, it
recovered without errors. Then I dumped it to a new repo. Renamed it
to the old repo name and everything seems to be working great.

PS - let me know if you want to play some internet golf. I'll send
you a username and password.

Thanks, again,
