Depends on how things are broken. I suspect that the data structures for 
appending transactions are borked. (The unpack list error seems to 
support that.) In cases of Data.fs corruption, this is not an uncommon 
symptom. The good news is that you can still read things. At worst, you 
end up doing a bunch of copy/pasting of source between browser windows. 
If you can install ZSyncer, go for it. Else, the Zope export/import 
facilites should help a lot.
