There must be a missing link in this story somewhere.

A 1.6.11 'svnadmin upgrade' would *not* create a format 5 repository.
It would create format 4.

Are you 100% sure that you (or someone else) didn't run 'svnadmin upgrade'
with a 1.7 alpha release accidentally? That's the only possible
explanation for the error you are seeing. At least I cannot think of
any other reason (apart from manual meddling with repository data, but
that's obviously not a supported use case either).

How many repositories are affected by this? All of them? Just one?
