FSFS corruption

From: Brad <svn_at_molandernet.com>

I have 18 fsfs repositories that I recently upgraded to 1.2.1 from 1.1.
I dumped and reloaded them as recommended and everything has been fine
for a week. One repository however now repeatedly gets "svnadmin: Found
malformed header in revision file" when people try to checkin or browse
it via websvn. This is a decent sized project at 1.5GB and 4k files.

svnadmin recover seems to do nothing and return success every time. I
created a duplicated repository and removed the most recent transaction
from revs and decremented the revision number in db/current. The
repository seems to function now, however I am curious as to the effects
this will have on WCs, especially for the user that created this
document (binary file).

Have I followed the correct and best procedure for this recovery? Have I
inadvertently caused more harm than good by doing this? Anything else I
could do to either get the corrupted revision back?
