I should have noticed that the dialog asks for the repository address.

But semantically this seems backwards.

The project files that I want svn to keeps tabs on were in e:\testproject
Originally e:\svn\testproject had no 'project' files in it.
My assumption was that the e:\svn\testproject dir, the repository, needed to
have the project files imported into it...else it has no useful content.
I reversed my steps as you suggested and there were no errors. But, neither
are there any of my project files in e:\svn\testproject, the repository, as
far as I can see. If a project file was e:\testproject\readme.txt, am I not
supposed to find a readme.txt somewhere in the repository?

But something must be really wrong with what I'm expecting. I can't imagine
send a file out from e:\testproject to e:\svn\testproject as an import;
that'd always be termed an export. And since I don't see anything from the
project, it does seem that nothing was imported or exported.
