The 1.5 solution to this would be sparse directories: the parent would
be a wc, but at depth-empty or something, and then you'd include just
the subdirs (i.e., projects) you want beneath that.

It sounds like you tried that, but via an unusual route: you already
had the subdirs, and you sort of "inserted" the parent .svn in place
at depth-empty. Of course it shouldn't crash, but I'm not sure I'd
expect it to work either (though it would be nice if it did).

Can you make a script that causes this crash using the cmdline client?
