files or dirs in root of repository

i have problems with creating files and directories in the root of the
repository. The client fails with segfaults.

My views of what the root directory is may be broken, and hopefully
somebody could enlighten me.

In my apache2 configuration i have this (stripped):

<Location /private/cubitest/>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /big/svn/cubitest/

I now imagine that /private/cubitest/ is the root of the repository.

The manual talks about content that is directly in the root of the
repository. In my repository i have a directory cubiform/, i can see
this be pasting the URL http://domain.my/private/cubitest/ in my
browser: i see a single directory cubiform.

However, I cannot check-out this URL:
sgr_at_stereo:~/svn$ svn co http://rotzorg.org/private/cubitest/
Segmentation fault

I can check out the directory immediately below 'my' root:
sgr_at_stereo:~/svn$ svn co http://rotzorg.org/private/cubitest/cubiform/
A cubiform/trunk

Renaming the directory in 'my' root results in a segfault too:
gr_at_stereo:~/svn$ svn cp http://rotzorg.org/private/cubitest/cubiform/
http://rotzorg.org/private/cubitest/cubiform-renamed/ -m "rename"
Segmentation fault

Should i think of the root as http://rotzorg.org/private/cubitest/cubiform/,
or is this an ordinary bug?

I've created the repository with an svn import, but do not think i used
the third parameter. But this confuses me further because the manual
tels me that if you do not use the third parameter, the content of the
imported directory are placed directly in the root. (see the section
about svn import)

btw, i'm using subversion r4503
