Restoring from old backup

This should be a FAQ, but I didn't find a proper answer, so here I am.

I suffered a crash in my SVN server machine.
I had a slightly old version of the repository on my backup disks.
I have a few modified working copies.

I restored the server and the repository.
All *seemed* ok, but, unfortunately, the latest version of saved repo
was 99, while the "current" in my working copies is 104.

Now Subclipse (and TortoiseSVN) refuse to Submit my latest copy because
"version 104 does not exist".

I understand I lost a few steps in the program history, but I would like
to salvage as much as possible.
What is the right incantation to achieve that?

I would rather not checkout a fresh copy, move all changes to it and
submit that, if possible, because it is too error-prone.

Can someone suggest a course of action?
