(I don't use file URLs, but the same principles should apply,
making this advice worthwhile still. Also, I'm using the
latest, so if argument order has changed, that'll break for you.)

Have you tried?

svn import LOCALPATH file:///usr/local/svn/repos/XX

to import LOCALPATH to [...]/svn/repos/XX

But Karl's advice is on the money. Later versions of
subversion are (almost) always better than prior versions.
