Well, svn's behavior has been like this for extremely long already.
We've seen it happen on some systems, but usually this is a
configuration error on the system on which it occurs: some problem in
mod_rewrite or elsewhere, which interacts badly with mod_dav_svn.

BTW: I think svn can't keep the trailing slashes: if I'm correct, the
standard (WebDAV) requires us to work without them.

So, for now, please review your configuration for mod_rewrite errors
or overlapping names between your document root and the repository
content. IOW: you can't put your repository in the document root, nor
any directory with the same path and name as your repository.
