beginner admin question: no repository found

The machine on which my svn repository lives was recently upgraded. I didn't have svnserve in a run-on-reboot script, so I started it by hand (log in as "svn", then type "svnserve -d"). But whenever I make any requests of the server (e.g. "svn ls svn://localhost", much less "svn update"), I get the error message "svn: No repository found in 'svn://localhost'". I then do a "ps x", and I see something like
11550 ? Ss 0:00 svnserve -d
11556 ? Z 0:00 [svnserve] <defunct>

Is 11556 just a subprocess created to handle this request, which for whatever reason hasn't gone away yet? Or is it the actually svn server, which for some reason died as soon as it was asked to do any work?

I've done an "svnadmin verify", and the repository seems to be fine. None of the config files has been changed in over a year, so I doubt they're corrupted. Any ideas?
