Client side repository corruption

On Windows XP 64-bit, I was doing a `svn up' and my machine crashed while it was
still in the `svn up' operation. After rebooting, issuing `svn up' again or `svn
st' triggers this error message:
svn: XML parser failed in '.'
svn: Malformed XML: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1

Doing svn cleanup has no effect.

Looking at the content of the .svn directory, I can see that entries and
all-wcprops only contains null characters. Does it mean that cancelling a svn up
operation is a bad idea? Is there a way to restore the repository?
