Ideally, you should have been using the latest version of Subversion,
which is currently 1.3.2, and I personally would have recommended not
using BerkeleyDB (it's no longer the default as of Subversion 1.2.0).
But now that you have an issue, probably best to fix it before trying
to upgrade anything.

Revision 0? That's the revision before you check anything in. A
repository at revision 0 contains no data. Unfortunately I can't
offer any advice since I haven't had to recover a repository before
and I've never worked with the BerkeleyDB backend... But many on the
list have experience with BDB so hopefully someone will have an idea.
