Subject Re: error: Revision file lacks trailing newline
Date Sat, 10 Nov 2012 12:43:46 GMT
Problem solved.  Just wanted to post back so folks having the same
problem might benefit from my wasted day of troubleshooting.

Turned out that a few files in my FSFS repo had gotten corrupted.  I had
backups (thankfully), so I just replaced those couple files giving me
problems in 'svnadmin verify' with the backups, and that was that. 
There was one other file giving me problems (turned up as: "svn:
E175002: REPORT of '/svn/reponame/!svn/me': Could not read chunk size:
Secure connection truncated (https://mycomp:53239)" ).  I looked in the
windows event logs for the VisualSVN Server events, and turned out there
were permission problems.  I changed the permissions on the
corresponding file in the repo/db/revs file to match all the other files
in there (it must have gotten corrupted too), and now i'm running great.

Hope someone can benefit from my experience.
