More likely you have set the "SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK" environment variable
by mistake when installing. That makes all subversion clients look for
_svn instead of .svn. Test that theory by checking out a fresh working
copy of something to see which type of svn directory is used.

To fix, delete that variable from your environment and reboot.
