RE: Unable to dump repository

Actually, it seems I have several repositories that are in this same
state. Not sure if the update to 1.4.3 had something to do with it or
not. One of the repositories that is corrupt is a new empty repository
and I can make that available (not sure if I can send attachments but I
attached it anyway). If there is a way to fix this, I have some others
that need fixed but I will have to fix them myself (with good
instructions of course :) ).

        I have never had to recover a problem like this. If you can
dump up to the problem, then skip that revision and dump what comes
after, you might be able to fix the problem. Just load the first dump
file. Do some random commit to use up the next revision number, and
then load the second dump file. The random commit is not strictly
necessary if you do not care about the revision numbers changing.
        It appears that there are other revisions after my corrupt
revision that also have that same issue. It would be nice if there was
a repair option that could just fix it for me :) ... but that would be
too easy. I can dump pieces of the repo so I will work on piecing it
back together from that unless someone else has any better suggestions.

Would you be willing to make the repository available for some
post-mortem? The upside for you is that perhaps a developer could fix
it by hand. The upside for us would be fixing a potential problem.

Is this fsfs or bdb? Have you done anything to muck with any of the
files in the repository directly?
