The server and clients are on the same LAN (a few hops)
and I think the link between the two machines is good.

The server provides its access through svn+ssh with
svnserve and sshd (provided by a Fedora package
The svnserve is configured to allow
  anon-access = read
  auth-access = write
(These are the only changes made to our svnserve.conf)

At present I'm the only one user of the server and
my access is mainly from a linux machine (i386, Fedora
9) with svn provided by the subversion-1.4.6-7.i386
rpm package.

There are about 430 files in the failed revision:
many of these are c/fortran source and object files.

This morning I've tried to recover (fake) the failed
revision by loading a dump obtained on a different
machine by making a cloned repository (but failed though:
I still get the same "svn: Malformed svndiff data in
representation" error when checking out for example).

Later I'll send you the corrupted revision and the full
output of the script by a private email.

Thanks in advance.
