Broken BDB subversion repository

While not doing anything out of the ordinary with our repository we
got an error something like "reference to non-existent node: 0.0.2cs".
Our first attempt to resolve the problem was running svnadmin recover
on the repository. Since then we get the error "DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND:
Requested page not found". db_recover did not solve this problem. We
have made a copy of the repository (to a new harddrive in case of
damage to the old one). We restored our last backup (2006-12-20), but
this is 62 revision old. We tried to dump the changes by doing
"svnadmin dump path -r1550:HEAD --incremental" but it received the
same error. Is there any way to fix this error? What is the best way
to recover as much of revision data as possible? We have all the most
current files checked out, so how, even if we were forced to lose the
revision data, would I check in what I have and maintain correct
revision numbering or whatever necessary so that updates and commits
for others work?
