Hi Jelmer,

Thanks for taking a look at this.

A few days ago, guided by my Apache-errorlogs that I posted before, I manually 
fixed the Subversion repository in question, i.e. I edited the stored 
checksum to match the actual checksum.
Fixing the repository made the bzr error go away -- bzr-svn works like a charm 

Obviously the "bug" that I experienced is to be blamed on Subversion, and the 
fact that the repository was corrupt.

I suggest that you query the reporter of bug 185574 to see if he also has 
similar error messages in his Apache log -- in which case I think it's safe 
to say that his problem too is due to a corrupt repository. Judging by the 
symptoms, I looks like it might be the same problem?

If you want, I could make the corrupted repository that was causing the 
trouble available again.
