This is what I found on the web on this message. However, the commit
was performed using client and server >= 1.6.4, and a modified svnadmin
(reporting the numbers checked along with the error message) clearly
shows some kind of overflow: The reported numbers are unstable, and
flip between positive and negative values.
Testing with 1.6.3, which has the security error, seems not very
appealing: First, I think that the error should have been reported
on commit, not on checkout. Moreover, it's quite unlikely that 1.6.3
will be able to handle the revision file correctly - it's much more
likely that the revision will trigger the security error.

I'm afraid the commit just got corrupted somehow - is there a way to
remove/replace it in the repository?
