I'm not sure the config code expects a port number here. Try without

I think you have a misconception about what the servers config file is
for. The above svn checkout command will not work. You need to specify
the full URL. The servers file is for specifying proxy servers or
tunnels and things like whether or not to use compression etc. It's not
meant to shorten your checkout commands.

I would have expected "svn checkout svn/svn/repos/trunk/Hallo_Welt/perl"
to give an error. If it does not, I believe that's a bug.

If I try this sort of thing, svn does indeed not complain and also
appears not to do anything:

$ svn --version
svn, version 0.20.1 (r5467)
   compiled Apr 2 2003, 22:35:02

$ svn co blah
$ echo $?
$ svn co blah something
svn: Bogus URL
svn: `blah' does not appear to be a URL
$ echo $?
