Re: Corrupted Repository

Hello again,

The problems appear starting with the version of subversion in Ubuntu 13.10
(version 1.7.9 along with 1.8.4). If I go back to Ubuntu 13.04 (version
1.7.5), the problems disappear. I was able to create a new dump. However,
it crashes in the same way when loading in Ubuntu 13.10.

Could this be a bug in the more recent versions?
