I recently had the same problem. I never found any cause for it, but I did manage to deal with it somewhat better than you did. On the master, I did svnadmin hotcopy, then I tarred up the backup and sent it to the slave, and extracted it. I had to configure the slave hook scripts, and the revprop rev 0 properties, and then I was able to svnsync to the slave again. The main point of difference ... No need to wait for 65k commits to transfer. Since it's starting from a recent backup, it's enormously faster.
