Why do you say that? What did you expect it to look like? What did it
look like before?

That's what you would expect. The revisions are stored in the db/revs
folder, one file per revision. Each file (roughly speaking) records
the changes relative to the previous revision.

Check that you copied the directory structure correctly, and that the
Documents\repo\transactions folder exists.

You caould also ask on the users at subversion.tigris.org mailing
lists - this is a subversion server side issue (file:/// mode means
that the same program acts as both client and server).
