Subject Can't read length line in file X [500, #200002]
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2014 10:18:07 GMT

I'm using Subversion 1.6.9 via the CollabNet Subversion Server. When trying
to check out part of the repository I had an error and saw the following in
the Apache logs:

[Wed Jul 09 10:26:35 2014] [error] [client X] Provider encountered an error
while streaming a REPORT response.  [500, #0]
[Wed Jul 09 10:26:36 2014] [error] [client X] A failure occurred while
driving the update report editor  [500, #200002]
[Wed Jul 09 10:26:36 2014] [error] [client X] Can't read length line in
file Y  [500, #200002]

The revision that is failing is about 49 MB and was created in 2009.
Subversion is hosted on Windows Server 2003.

Looking through the mailing list archive, I see 3 options:

   - restore a backup, which hasn't worked
   - dump before the damaged revision, after the damaged revision and then
   reproduce the change. Unfortunately I don't know all that was changed in
   this revision, due to it occurring 5 years ago
   - if you are willing to look at it
      - provide you the revision
      - provide you an output of a script

I know that this is an old version of Subversion, so would I be able to
recover the file or part of the file, or would the only solution be to
start a new repository with what I can recover?

Thank you
