Well, can you please tell us which platform you're using, where you got
the SVN binaries or how you compiled them, and the exact command
sequence (including repository creation) that lets you reproduce this
problem? The fact is, we have a zillion tests that do exactly what you
claim you're doing, and they pass on quite a few platforms.

As Garrett said, without a detailed bug report, we can't even begin to
gues what's going on.

And no, there should not be a --force that hides bugs, if this is indeed
a bug. Such an option is just plain wrong. If it's a user error, then
it's even wronger.
