Work around:

Just create your repository and import just your basic folder layout
(e.g. /trunk, /branches/, /tags) and check it out to a working copy.
Now copy all your files into that working copy and add/commit.
That's how I did it with a web site project for I needed to have the
dates preserved because of the upload routine.
