Are you running xfs_repair before log recovery (ie. mount)?
If so, that's bad - you need to mount first so that the journal
can be replayed before you run xfs_repair.

Try also a current (xfsprogs-1.3.12+) version of xfs_repair -
this will warn you if the log is dirty when you try to run
xfs_repair, and will not allow it.
