RE: svnsync malformed file

Well, I ran svnadmin verify on the entire damaged repository, and it
reported no problems.

So, I'm stuck - although I will restart the sync, I'd still like to know
what's going on with this repo. I've done a diff between the repo files
and another repo and it all looks ok, but obviously something, somewhere
is broken. Is there any debugging I can turn on to help determine which
file is broken?

(incidentally, I've just tried with svn itself, to list the repository
contents and it reports the same "malformed file" error. Obviously my
repo is screwed, but I'd still like to know if its recoverable and which
file is the malformed one)

Did you run 'svnadmin verify' on the whole repository, or did you just
check the last revision? From the description, it sounds like you did
the latter. I'd recommend you check the whole repository. It can help
tell you which revision is broken.
