Safe to backup if failed svnadmin verify?

I have setup a nightly backup script to do hotcopy and a dump of my
repository.

I also have a script that runs svnadmin verify and sends me an e-mail if
there is a problem.

My question: Is it safe to run the backup if 'verify' failed? Old backups
are kept, so there is no issue about bad backups overwriting good ones, just
whether I could further damage the repo.

I guess a secondary question is whether there is any point - i.e. will the
backup succeed, and will the backups be usable (aside from the damaged
revisions, obviously).
