I did. In fact, one of the links I posted in the above message is a
link to a thread on svk-users I started. No one replied with a
solution (if I received any reply whatsoever). Right now I'm seeking
help on IRC (for the fourth time or so), and someone suggested I
restore the repository to a state where I know it works well, and make
progress from there. That's the best advice I received so far.

There's nothing useful there for my problem.

My question is really a Subversion question - not an SVK question. I'm
looking for a program that uses the svn APIs that can propagate the
changesets from the SVK repository back to the svn repository. A fix
to SVK will also be good, but either solution will be fine.
