I do think it's a bug, but I was never able to find enough info to make it into a bug report. I kept all the good & bad versions of the repository... I ran the "svnadmin verify" all over the place (which is enormously time consuming) ... svnadmin dump | svnadmin load ... Everything I can think of. Never got any error in any way, except by repeating the svnsync from the master.
It's 100% consistent. I get the same checksum error, on the same file, every time. I have a supposed "good" copy of the slave repo, at rev 4050... which will fail every time at 4061 (or something like that)... The only explanation I can find is a md5sum collision going undetected, and then some larger operation has an md5sum which fails as a result. I know it's astronomically impossible, but I can't come up with any other explanation.
