It took me a while to figure out what Stefan meant (if this is indeed
what he meant).
The svnserve.exe is incapable of serving the '5' repositories; so while
the error msg is shown in TortoiseSVN, this is not something 'wrong'
from TortoiseSVN's side (or from your installation of it). Instead, it
is a server-side problem.

So all you have to do is install svn 1.4.2 (the Server part).
Which can be found (at the time of writing) at:

If you work under windows, download and install svn-1.4.2-setup.exe .

I hope this solves your problem (if you still have it), or any future
problem other people might have, like I had.
