The problem is most likely the EOL bug in svn:log entries. SVN 1.6
does not accept carraige returns in svn:log entries.

Here's a python script that you can run against the original 1.4
repository to fix it. Once that is done you will be able to sync. The
bug is fixed in 1.6.3, but that is not available yet, so I had to
write this so we could move forward with our upgrade.
