Thanks David, that help me a step further. I found out that 72 is the
latest revision number. I wrote that into the current file and did a
svnadmin dump of the repository. It showed me that it would dump all the
revisions up to 71. For 72 it reported an error in the file:


So I looked into that file and it is in binary form. The other files of
lower revision all seem to be in text form.

I am thinking now whether I should just dump revision 72 and revert the
repository to revision 71. I haven't added too much recently, so I could
probably live with that loss. The other idea I have is to just commit
the changes from the checked out version that reported me that top of
revision is 72.
