This is not a regression.
You're doing something illegal: the repository folder is private
property of Subversion. You were never allowed to store anything in it
yourself. Only Subversion is allowed to do that.
Since you created another repository inside a repository folder, you are
violating that rule.

If you think about this, you know that you did something wrong. Just
imagine what would happen if Subversion would require another folder
named 'project' in the repository folder, and you already had another
repository created with that name?

Fix your setup please.

Note: Subversion introduced a check on trunk so it won't be possible to
create a repository inside a repository anymore (this indicates that you
were not the only one doing this).
