I don't know offhand what SVN_REPOS__FORMAT_NUMBER was in 2003 — that's
several years before I joined the project — but first things first, I'd
like to confirm that you aren't running into https://subversion.apache.org/issue3744.
Did you run «svnadmin upgrade /path/to/repo/db» or «svnadmin
upgrade /path/to/repo»? The latter would be correct.
