svn client in use: 1.4.2
error which has been encountered: 'svn: Decompression of svndiff data
The error renders the revision useless, making it impossible to check
out or run svnsync on the repository any longer, because svnsync
encounters the same error at this specific revision (r58158).
The engineer who committed the revision killed an svn commit from
within Xcode 2.4.1 and recommitted with svnX after doing an svn cleanup.
The workaround was to delete the file on the server in a later
revision and check in a new version of the same file.

Now what could corrupt a file during a commit such that it is
impossible to check out the directory the file lives in?
and how do I get rid of that revision?
