It's completely OK to have several clients accessing the repository at
the same time of course.

I assume that you killed all svnserve:s, ran svnadmin recover, and that
it completed without error. We need to narrow this down a bit further.
Make sure that your repos is not a network drive, and that you do not
have a permission/umask problem.

Can you checkout using file://? If that works, can you run "svnserve -d"
on the server and access it via svn://?

You should also upgrade to the latest release (0.36) of course.

I doubt that this is an SMP problem, but who can know for sure?

Not likely.
