You mean "-h path/to/repo/db", I think.

Yes, that would work around the problem if only the uuids table was damaged.

I'm not sure whether you restored the original uuid of the repository, or
had it generate a new one. I'm not sure quite what the effects of a
repository changing uuid would be - I forced such a situation on one of my
repositories, and it didn't seem to have much effect, other than scattering
my working copy .svn/entries files with unexpected additional uuid
attributes.
