why not to delete the "corrupted" file and then copy it from an earlier
revision ? svn cp / copy (of course if the file exists in earlier revisions)

How about to create a branch from an earlier revision let's say 7770
and start there the development, meanwhile you can get a HD to
recreate te repository or work around the main branch and the mix
both. Of course be careful to fix the file that started the problem.

$ svn cp -r 7770 http://host/svn/trunk
http://host/svn/branches/name_ofthe_branch -m "the show must go on,
with this"

Good luck!
