Unfortunately, Subversion is not designed to get out of this problem
easily. This is why it is so important to have completely current
backups at all times. Best idea is to use svndump in a post-commit
hook so that you have a backup of every revision, all the time. You
can and should still do regularly-scheduled dumps or hot-copies, and
then possibly clean up the incremental dumps made in the post-commit
hook up to that point.

Now that you have the problem, though, here's an answer I wrote to
someone last year about how to get out of it; maybe it will help you
