passwords in checked-in code

Hi all,

I accidentally committed a password in clear text to a configuration
file in my SVN codebase. I've since added various other new

I'm wondering if it's possible to edit the repository to remove the
password from the config file.

I'm using the linux filesystem for storage.. I found the files in
db/revs -- however when I remove the password (replacing the
characters with X's) -- when I try to check out the file, I get a
checksum failure.

So -- Is there any way to do this while maintaining all the other history?

Thanks in advance
