That's unfortunate since the corruption might well cause completely
incorrect results.  I'd suggest that CVSNT be changed to fail in that
case as CVS does.  That makes validate_repo less useful with CVSNT than
it might be, but like I said before, log failing (either by returning a
failure status or by simply not generating a revision history) is
sufficient to cause validate_repo to flag the file as corrupt, so it's
still useful.
