For what it is worth, I have exactly the same problem (almost identical error
message) on Debian. I'm mostly tracking sarge, but using Debian
package from unstable for subversion 0.25. I haven't done anything but
upgrade throughout the 0.2* series. I'm including my error message below.

Just typing svnshell, by the way, gets the expected response.

Once the program has started, type 'help' at the prompt for hints on
using the shell.
