ERROR: XML document structures must start and end within the same entity

I've reproduced an error our users are getting when they try to checkout
a path on one of our internally hosted Subversion repositories. The
users have tried from several clients. I tried using the svn CLI
version 1.3.2 with same result.

While browsing threads, I came across references to issue 2467, but did
not see any resolutions listed. Here are the stats on our system:

Linux SuSE 9.3
Subversion 1.2.3 (as loaded from the SuSE SDK and subsequent RPMs)
Apache 2.0.49-27.34 and APR 0.9.5
Neon 0.24.7-6.5
It failed on three clients:
Subclipse: 1.1.9
Linux command line: version 1.4.4

Developers use http protocol to access the repositories, but I also
verified that the same problem happens when using "svn co file:///
csapps/bst/kba_web/trunk/kba_agent/WEB-INF/lib "

Here are the errors the user and I received:

Error: REPORT request failed on '/csapps/!svn/vcc/default'
Error: REPORT of '/csapps/!svn/vcc/default': 200 OK


svn: REPORT request failed on '/csapps/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Processing REPORT request response failed: XML document structures
must start and end within the same entity. (/csapps/!svn/vcc/default)

Svnverify reveals the error message, "svnadmin: Malformed representation
header" at revision 2064.

1. Will this require a dump and subsequent svndumpfilter to remove the
offending path, then reload to correct the problem?

2. Could it be as simple as upgrading the version of Subversion, Apache
or APR on the servers to resolve the problem?

3. Is the repository completely hosed and should I restore from our
backups up to revision 2063?

I appreciate your time and effort to respond to my issue and look
forward to viewing responses.
