RE: malformed file problem -- version 1.5.7

One of my users committed a file to svn and now some users are getting a
'malformed file' error. These users can no longer check out or commit.
'Svnadmin verify /svnrepos' doesn't show any problems, however 'malformed
file' appears when I do a nightly dump export;

svnadmin dump /svnrepos > /backup/svnrepos.svn_dump <snip>
* Dumped revision 11529.
svnadmin: Malformed file

I believe the problem lies within revision numbers 11530 and 11532. Other
users who are working on other projects are not having problems. We are
currently at revision 11784. Is there a way that I can repair this?

Is there a way to roll back to revision 11529 and start there? Should I
remove all the revision number files greater that 11529 and have my users
check out again? Trying to figure out the best way to fix this.

Many thanks,
