Commiting large binary file generated checksum error and corrupted repository ... now can't update ...

Hi,

I had about a dozen large (4M) binary files (images) that I attempted to
commit as a single commit. Svn repeatedly reported checksum errors and
filed the commit. I found I had to commit one file at a time to get them
into the repository.

However, now I cannot update from the repository to a new/clean working
copy. I get the old checksum error and the update fails.

It gets better. Running 'svnadmin recover' works, but 'svnadmin verify'
still reports the checksum error.

Now we're stuck.

Any suggestions for how to get functional again? Also, are large binary
files a known problem for svn?

gentoo 2.6.10-hardened
subversion 1.1.1

Thx,
Sandy
