The commit dialog is related only to the WC and doesn't contact the
repo until you start the commit.

Known (and fixed on trunk) bug in TSVN 1.6.0. Cleanup sometimes crashes.

Repositories should not auto-upgrade, but it is possible you created
it with an older nightly and the format has changed. I believe svn was
using sqlite to do some caching a few months ago and that scheme was
changed before the release.
