If I were you, I wouldn't use import. I would do this:

  $ svn mkdir -m "Make a project root and initial layout for MyProject" \
        http://svnserver/projects/MyProject \
        http://svnserver/projects/MyProject/trunk \
        http://svnserver/projects/MyProject/tags \
  $ cd D:\Projects\MyProject
  $ svn co http://svnserver/projects/MyProject/trunk .
And then start using 'svn add' (and maybe 'svn revert' if you
accidentally schedule something for addition that you didn't want
to). Finally, 'svn commit' it all up.
