And it stopped there, even though I asked it to verify all revisions.

svnadmin dump also stops there, and I believe this was the original
complaint. The OP asked if there was a way for svnadmin verify to mark
that revision as bad, skip it and let svnadmin dump dump the rest. It
would be a waste if all the other 150k revisions didn't depend on this
one and just because of this couldn't be dumped.
