As the release notes (1) state, TSVN 1.6.x does not support file://
access to BDB (Berkeley DB) type repositories anymore. Only FSFS
repositories are supported for file:// access.

You have to convert your repository to FSFS format by using the command
line tool and run an 'svnadmin dump' and 'svnadmin load' cycle (2).
