I'm sorry, I'm not a svk guru or expert, so I don't have the solution to
your problem. I'm only using svk for a few days.

What gives:
svk info //local/krang/trunk/krang

Does ~/.svk/local/db/revs contains a file named 27397 ?

Maybe that's just ~/.svk/config that contains an "invalid" entry ?

And if you get a working copy of //local/krang/trunk/krang, at which
revision are you ?

Maybe fixing the config file could be enough to push your changes (this
is a complete blind suggestion).

Other than that, maybe you can push by doing a manual smerge against the
latest known revision of your current working copy. Since this still
looks like black magic to me, I won't even try to give your the correct
syntax :-)

Good luck,
