check_wc_root fails with message 'has no ancestry information'

I'm running subversion-0.37.0 on FreeBSD 5.1. I noticed some strange
behaviour that I wanted to report to the development team:

$ pkg_info -r subversion-0.37.0
Information for subversion-0.37.0:
Depends on:
Dependency: perl-5.6.1_15
Dependency: expat-1.95.6_1
Dependency: neon-0.24.3_1
Dependency: apache-2.0.48_3

$ cd /usr/local/www/data.users/caraldi.com/www/perso
$ svn commit
svn: '/usr/local/www/data.users/caraldi.com/www' has no ancestry information.
$ ls ../.svn
ls: ../.svn: No such file or directory
$ ls .svn
README.txt dir-props entries prop-base text-base wcprops
dir-prop-base empty-file format props tmp

It turns out that the parent directory is not a WC, the current
directory *is* the WC. It's the first time I meet that behaviour.
The sources indicate that this message is printed in
subversion/libsvn_wc/update_editor.c on line 2681.

Other operations like update, status are OK:
$ svn update
At revision 506.

What could be the cause of this? I've tried removing the WC and
checking out a fresh copy, but I had the same result.

Thanks in advance for letting me know,

Jean-Baptiste Quenot
