It's likely a problem with the repo (files are just deltas inside the repo...
they aren't separate entities like CVS). Try running 'svnadmin verify' on
the repo. If it fails with the same sort of error, then you definitely have
a problem with the repository. Judging from the error, it appears that the
text representation has a length x, but when trying to read out the delta in
the repository, it tried to read x+1. IOW, it didn't see the end of the
delta, which probably means something is corrupted.

If you need help fixing your repository, shoot me an email off list and I'll
be happy to help.
