This problem turned out to be network related - No problem at all.
If I access svnserve by staying inside our local network;
from the server machine I used svn://localhost or svn://127.0.0.1
and from a workstation I used the inside IP address svn://10.1.1.7
If I used our outside IP svn://xxx.xxx.xxx.xx then traffic goes though our
LINKSYS router (BEFSR41) which is configured to do port forwarding of 3690
to the inside server machine IP. Then I get the errors pretty consistently.
I do not have a solution to the router issue yet - I am going to see if
people can VPN to our LAN and access the svnserver from there.
I just wanted to pass on the info.

This error message is thrown by the subversion server. You might have
more luck asking for support on the Subversion mailing list
That said: It seems that either your server runs out of memory or your
harddrive has some bad sectors. So you can try
- run chkdsk on your server to make sure there aren't any bad sectors around
- open the process explorer (Ctrl-Shift-Esc) and watch the memory use on
You might also want to split the import into several commits:
- import *only* the main dir structure (i.e. /trunk /branches /tags).
- check out from trunk a working copy
- add all the files to the working copy
- commit your working copy
