I had this same error last night. The problem seemed to happen (for me
anyways) just after adding guid's to comments and trackbacks. Here's
what I did to fix this and get back to the trunk:

* Backup DB and any modifications to typo
* Revert to revision 636
* Manually remove the dbname.comments.guid, and dbname.trackbacks.guid
columns. (if they exist)
* Run rake migrate
* Update to trunk
* Run rake migrate
* Re-hack typo to your liking

Revision 636 introduced guid's for comments and trackbacks, which
requires re-saving of all such records. Later revisions of typo have
renamed the 'articles' table to 'contents', which makes this re-saving
difficult.  Hope this works.
