It seems you did something different this time when you created your
certificate. If Subversion asks you for a certificate *file*, then your
server doesn't provide one for the client to check, but it expects one
instead.
Are you sure you have copied the new certificate to the correct location
on your server? Or you may have created the certificate with some other
options than before.
