Berkeley DB error .. while opening 'strings' table:

Well its just happened to me.

Had a power cut taking my W2K subversion box with it. And now this when
I try to update:

Berkeley DB error for filesystem 'C:/SVN/rep/db' while opening 'strings'
Invalid argument
bdb: file strings (meta pgno = 0) has LSN [10][861782].
bdb: end of log is [10][844537]
bdb: c:\SVN\rep\db\strings: unexpected file type or format

I've tried svnadmin recover and verify but no joy.

Thankfully I've got a backup but it'd be really nice to recover this.
Any ideas guys?

If nothing else it's a painful reminder. You have got backups haven't you :)
