This is obviously a bug in the p42svn script. It's calculating the
checksums incorrectly, and there's not much Subversion can do after the

Sure, we could add an option to 'svnadmin load' to ignore checksums in
the dump file, but IMO that would be a really silly thing to do, because
the purpose of those checksums is verifying data integrity, and without
that verification one might as well move the repository to /dev/null.

You really should report this to the authors of the p42svn script.
