Well, I have good and bad news. The good news is that I don't think bzr
created a bogus revision. The bad news is that I think you have
corruption in one of your files.

Specifically, if I look at your .bzr/branch/revision-history file, I can
see that it ends with:

dalen at jpl.se-20061223153509-kagdcrwgbo4yyv47
dalen at jpl.se-20061223153531-uqnypgb116sexqqt
dalen at jpl.se-20061224010827-ulvr6ne98mmk3o40

But if I look at your .bzr/repository/revisions.kndx, it ends with:

Now, that seems to me like something caused

to become

And I doubt that was bzr.

I also get a CRC check failure in your .knit files. (They are gzip
compressed, and gzip has a CRC check that the contents have not been

If you want, I can work closely with you to try and get the undamaged
data out. But you may want to look closely at your hardware, if it is
causing bits to change on disk.
