That is a 100% correct description of my gripe. I'm stuck with a
repository I can't dump because a revision is corrupt and can't be fixed
with fsfsverify, a 3rd party tool with no support (officially but John
has been very helpful!).

I'm seriously doubting the production readiness of subversion with fsfs.
I'm going to look into subversion with bdb but I'm facing increasing
pressure to move to ClearCase which I am very loathed to do. I can't
defend subversion/fsfs as it stands.

Cheers, Chris.
