Well, now there are no more old corrupted repo so I cannot say.

Well, the whole working-dir-repo is around 100MB (web site with many
pics) and I removed (yesterday) corrupted main-repo.
So, can working-repo help you somehow?
I'm asking 'cause I'm not sure which repo was/is problematic, i.e. does
working-dir repo casued corruption of main-repo, or corrupted main-repo
caused faulty behaviour of working-dir-repo --------> main-repo?
If you think, that the present workin-dir-repo which contains the whole
history can help you, I'll upload it online?

Yes, everything was local.

No, normal ReiserFS (3.6.x)
