Missing revisions in FSFS repository

I have recently had to restore a Subversion repository from a backup
(which was created using hot-backup.py). It all looked OK at first, but
when we tried to commit something to the restored repository, it failed.
On examination of the repository, it turns out that files 3-9 and 30-99
are missing from the db/revs directory. So it looks as though something
has failed in the backup - we should obviously have checked the backup
before we really needed it ...

Anyway, my question is, is there anything I can do to recover from this
situation? For example, is there some way to dump revisions 100-HEAD
then load them into a new repository (so I would just lose the history
for revisions 1-99)? I've tried various svnadmin dump commands, but it
looks as though the absence of the earlier revisions means that I can't
dump the later ones.

My fallback position is to create a new repository from a working copy,
and lose all the history information - but I'd to avoid this if possible.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
