How to recover from "Found malformed header in revision file"?

> svn commit myfile
Sending myfile
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Corrupt node-revision '0-484.0-123.r993/92'
svn: Found malformed header in revision file

So I tried create a dump file:
> svnadmin dump /site/svn/ > dumpsvn
* Dumped revision 0.
* Dumped revision 987.
svnadmin: Corrupt representation '988 0 8767 8749
svnadmin: Malformed representation header

So it started a long long time ago... :(

> svn --version
svn, version 1.5.1 (r32289)
  compiled Aug 7 2009, 01:15:13

This the version of svn from ubuntu for whatever version is running on
that machine.

If a dump of the repo doesn't work, what next???
