Problem with remote import

I've recently set up a subversion server so we can evaluate moving from
CVS to subversion. It seems to be set up correctly, but I'm having the
following problem when I do remote imports:

$ svn import http://svn/svn/repos test test -m "initial test import"
svn_error: #21032 : <Obstructed update>
  svn_wc__wcprop_get: failed to load props from disk.
svn_error: #21032 : <Obstructed update>
  wcprop_path: test is not a working copy directory

This seems to be a client side problem, as apache's logs show no accesses
or errors, and replacing the servername in the repository URL with a
non-existent hostname doesn't cause any further errors. It seems as if
the import is expecting my import source to be a working copy and have
.svn inside it.

Local imports from the server machine work fine, however, and I can check
out the newly imported source remotely without problems.

For reference, the output of subversion --version on both client and
server is:

Subversion Client, version 0.10.2 (r1587)
   compiled Mar 26 2002, 17:05:27

This is a CVS checkout of apache, with CVS tag APACHE_2_0_33.

I've checked the archives and didn't find this problem, but I may have
missed it since I didn't search exhaustively. Any hints about what might
be wrong?
