I hit the exact same problem. I installed the 0.24.2 client on a new box
and could not check out anything from my server which was 0.20.0.
Upgrading the server to 0.24.2 fixed the problem. The 0.23 clients
worked happily against the old version. It is also weird that with the
0.24.2 client that there were no error message just an empty working
directory (with the .svn dir).
I had been avoiding upgrading the server due to possible down time and
given we were in the middle of a major product release unnecessary
changes did not seem like a good idea.
