Good question. My script was failing due to svnlook, but
it appears svnadmin rmxtns also fails.

H:\svn\repos>svnadmin rmtxns the_repo 77-1
svnadmin: Malformed file

I'm guessing two things here. It is probably safe to
just remove the dir, and that rmtxns probably should
be changed to not require a transaction be valid
before removing it...
