svnadmin: Malformed file

After a crash of the filer of my hosting company
my Subversion repository seems corrupted. svn update and svn commit
works but svnadmin dump complains:

* Dumped revision 984.
* Dumped revision 985.
* Dumped revision 986.
* Dumped revision 987.
svnadmin: Malformed file

svnadmin recover does not help:

Repository lock acquired.
Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...

Recovery completed.
The latest repos revision is 997.

I tried to dump until r987, load it in a fresh repos and then dump
from 989 (since 988 appears broken) and load it but it fails:

<<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 989
svnadmin: File already exists: filesystem '/home/stephane/Subversion-Personal-Repository/db', transaction '987-1', path 'trunk'
     * adding path : trunk ...

I could restart from the last backup but they are a bit too old
(always do backups!). Anyone has a better solution?
