Missing revisions

I'm sorry if this has been answered earlier. I did
search the archive, but wasn't able to find anything

I'm running svn on an Ubuntu box and one of my
repositories seems to be missing some versions.

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.17-10-server (root@vernadsky) (gcc
version 4.1.2 20060928 (prerelease) (Ubuntu
4.1.1-13ubuntu5)) #2 SMP Fri Oct 13 18:47:26 UTC 2006
(Ubuntu 2.6.17-10.33-server)
$ svnserve --version
svnserve, version 1.3.2 (r19776)
   compiled Oct 4 2006, 23:52:00

The following repository back-end (FS) modules are

* fs_base : Module for working with a Berkeley DB
* fs_fs : Module for working with a plain file (FSFS)

$ svnadmin verify /var/svn/coyote/
* Verified revision 0.
* Verified revision 1.
* Verified revision 92.
svnadmin: No such revision 93

Additionally, when I ask TortoiseSVN for a log, it
gripes about a missing revision #198, so #93 isn't the
only one. I'm currently at revision #365.

Everything seems to be working, but this distresses
me. Additionally, these missing teeth seem to cause
TortoiseSVN some heartburn when I try to do various
things. It seems to recover, but it's not giving me
the warm fuzzies I need to know that my work is


What could have caused this?

Is it indicative of a crash? If so, what should I do?

Is there something I can stick in to fill these
missing gaps? I'm guessing nothing crucial was lost
since everything seems to run okay, so would there be
a way to stick in a stub that basically says,
"revision #93... no changes", just so everyone is
happy again?

Could I remove these gaps by exporting the remaining
pieces, catting them together and importing them
again? I fear that solution because I've labelled
branches in my log text and the revisions will be
wrong if I omit these gaps.

Any feedback from others with a similar experience
would be appreciated. My boss will have a heart-attack
if he finds that my last year of work is in jeopardy.

Many thanks,
