Can you provide more information? The most helpful thing you can do in
a situation like this is to post a nice reproduction recipe showing
exactly what you did, from soup to nuts, to cause the
problem. Something like this:

    I'm running Windows version blah blah, SVN version foo compiled using
    mingw. Here's how I blew up the repos:

    $ svnadmin create /myrepos
    $ svn import file:///myrepos /some/dir
    $ svn co file:///myrepos /my/working/copy
    $ cd /my/working/copy
    $ svn mkdir foo
    $ svn ci -m "blah"
    $ svn mv foo bar
    $ svn mv baz bat
      ERROR MESSAGE QUX: invalid Frozznozzle in the Hoopgart!

Vague descriptions like "I've been moving and mkdir'ing
directories..." really only leave people room to guess at your
problem, so more often than not, you won't get the answer you're
looking for.
