import failing to create .svn directories

I am trying to create a new repository and populate it from an existing
set of files and directories, and failing miserably. I create the
repository OK, but when I try to add the files by importing the 'trunk'
directory it appears to add them OK but does not create any .svn
directories in the tree, so subversion does not know that the files are
under its control. I have deleted the repository and tried from scratch
several times but to no avail.

Here is a transcript of one of my attempts:


E:\prj\Sas2Xls\trunk>svnadmin create c:\repos\sasconv

E:\prj\Sas2Xls\trunk>dir c:\repos\sasconv
  Volume in drive C is Local Disk
  Volume Serial Number is 0C42-9CB5

svn: '.' is not a working copy



So what am I doing wrong?

I originally tried this with version 0.34, which I had used a few months
ago to successfully create a repository. When that did not work I upgraded
to 1.0.0. I have also tried it with the latest version of TortoiseSVN,
with the same results. I am running Windows XP Home edition.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
