Those are not the repository uuids, those are just your project ids.

I don't know dreamhost. But I doubt that you can configure the
repository uuid - that is created automatically when a NEW repository is
created. Seems dreamhost made the same mistake as some other hosters by
simply copying an existing preconfigured repository instead of creating
a new one.

You can check the uuid by right-clicking on your working copy folder,
select "properties" from the explorer context menu (not the one in the
TSVN submenu). Then go to the Subversion tab. There you can see the
repository uuid.
For example, the TSVN repository has the uuid

If your different repositories have the same uuid, then yes please
report that to them and force them to set up the repositories properly.
Having the same uuid on all repositories will cause severe problems (not
just the one you just discovered but other problems as well).

Also, see my blog post about problems with the log cache resulting from
identical uuids:
