If it's an FSFS repo, then no, it won't do anything for you. Even if
it's BDB, it still won't fix this issue.

It does sound like a broken revision. What's the last "Dumped
revision" that you see? If it's an FSFS repo, can you send me the rev
file for the revision *after* that one? Alternatively, you can try
fsfsverify (http://www.szakmeister.net/fsfsverify/). Please make sure
to backup your repo before trying anything.
