Gosh, that was unfortunate! I have just completed the local load
operation for all repos. If the UUID will block the subsequent
synchronize (which I have not come to yet but is next on my list),
then this is also all in vain...

But to be on the other side if I can use
svnadmin setuid <repo path>
to I get a fresh uuid on all of them, maybe that will make it work for
sync after all?

I was just worried about the hooks interfering with the load
operation. I have no need for them at all in that situation, but they
will be used during synchronize. And I used no extra arguments to the
load command.
