Could you give me some more insight on how exactly you performed the
restore? I read up on your problem a bit, but theres no any details.
Cloning my repo ends up the same way as everything does:

Copied properties for revision 1024.
Committed revision 1025.
Copied properties for revision 1025.
Committed revision 1026.
Copied properties for revision 1026.
Transmitting file data

I read up a lot of problem-posts on the net, and theres a lot of
people complaining about broken revs in their repo. Unfortunately the
only solution which pops is the third party fsfsverify.py, which is
failing in my case. I saw some posts about cases, when fsfsverify.py
didn't worked, but usually there was no further information on if and
how they managed to recover the data. Other solutions with dumping.
cloning, skipping rev didn't worked, as I mentioned in the OP. My
subversion version is 1.5.1.
