The icon you refer to (red minus sign) will appear on any file that has
the read-only attribute set. Generally, this means that the
svn:needs-lock property is defined on the file. In your case, it sounds
like the files were read-only before you imported them.
I think there is a bit of a bug in Subversion here. Ideally, when you
committed those files (since you do not have the svn:needs-lock property
set on the files) it should have removed the read-only attribute. I have
heard of people having Subversion commands like update and merge fail if a
file was read-only in the working copy (and did not have svn:needs-lock
