Re: Corrupted Repository

When booting in Ubuntu 13.04 through a USB key, I was able to mount
the encrypted home folder in read only, and then dump, load, and
verify outside of the encrypted home in 13.04 (but still on btrfs).
Moreover, when I returned to 13.10, I was able to "svn verify" the
repository outside of the encrypted home.

And what's more is that I was able to make a copy of that new
repository inside the encrypted home, and "svn verify" it using Ubuntu
13.10. Something must have gone wrong with ubuntu home encryption
13.10 and some files in the repository.

Anyway, as I recovered my repository, I'm happy now.
