> svnadmin: Malformed representation header
I've just gotten this issue with one of my repositories. The repository is
largely binary data.

I see this error when doing checkouts or running "svnadmin verify <repo>."

This differs from other issues I've seen in one major respect: *every*
version after the 'effected' version is unfetchable. I can't do an
"svnadmin dump -r n:HEAD <repo>" (where 'n' is any number after the
corrupted version).

In my instance the corrupted version seems to be 8. But there are 17
revisions in total. I honestly have no idea how that happened...

I'm not sure that I can provide any of the data from this repository.

I'm using FSFS through mod_dav. Though I'm going to be converting it to
Berkley DB after this (as per John's suggestion on another repository I've
had issues with).

Is this a similar issue to the other corrupted header issues I've seen?
Any suggestions on how I can recover anything past the corrupted version?
I suppose I can just rebuild the 7 revisions I *can* get and then commit
from somebody's local filesystem...
