No idea, sorry. But:

Try svnadmin dump with the -r parameter to dump just the revisions
you want to keep, then svnadmin load to load them into a new repository.
Any checkouts of r11529 or earlier should be OK; if you have a later
checkout then you'll need to delete it and re-checkout.

Hand-editing the repository sounds like a bad idea*... you might get
rid of this corruption but introduce a different corruption.
Using dump/load should give you a valid repository.

Kind regards,
