Hm, svn 1.4 is actually not supported anymore (meaning there won't be
any 1.4.x releases anymore). Of course some people on this list may be
able to still help you, but I suggest that you upgrade your server as
soon as you can (but maybe that's what you're doing now actually).

I don't really know what you can/should do with this error. But,
pragmatically, I'd try to simply add a trailing newline to that
particular revision file and see if it helps (of course make a backup
copy of that rev file first).

If that doesn't help, maybe the tool fsfsverify can help fix the
revision file (it seems to be able to handle/fix some forms of rev
file corruption). Google will help you find it.

HTH,
Johan
