I tried to reproduce this issue with svn 1.4.3. On Windows, all works
fine, no issue at all. On linux svn aborted when trying to commit from
my working copy on '/'.

This is the resulting stacktrace:
Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

I didn't have time to look at it in more detail, although I do remember
making a change to that code some time ago on trunk. I'll look at it
