Yes - you didn't mention which version you used, but I'd definitely try
current. The bug rings a bell, maybe fixed now.
To be safe, you can always make an xfs_metadump image (use -o to not obfuscate
filenames for convenience), xfs_mdrestore that, and point repair at that fs
Then you'll see what it *would* do before you *do* do. ;)
But yeah, depending on the damage done to the storage, you may be in trouble
that repair can't help with. Depends on the failure, though.
