I would be inclined to conclude that is what I am dealing with, were I not able to update and commit from this copy - SVN Log shows the expected version information.

First, svnversion is part of the svn command line tools. This mailing
list is for TortoiseSVN. So you might ask questions about the command
line tools on the correct mailing list (subversion users list).

But something seems wrong here. svnversion does not output any text
"exported" at all, which you can check in it's (short) source file:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/branches/1.7.x/subversion/svnversion/main.c

If you have TSVN installed, you might want to use SubWCRev instead,
depending on what you want to achieve:
