svn mkdir --> Conflict - what can cause this?

We have an automatic (Hudson) build that runs every night. It starts by making a tag directory into which it will then copy the current build root folder. Last night, the mkdir failed:
svn --username [obfuscated] --password [obfuscated] --no-auth-cache mkdir --parents http://svn/repos/troux/autobuild/trunk/20110926_233057 -m"create autobuild tag directory"
svn: Conflict at '/autobuild/trunk/20110926_233057'
The job was rerun this morning without making any changes and it had no problem with the mkdir. I can guarantee that the directory didn't exist in the repository prior to the mkdir command.
The svn server is running on Linux (Fedora 14) and is at version 1.6.16
