Actually, I'd only tried checking out a deep-down path, not the full
repository. I tried that, and somewhere along the line /repos/[project
trees] became '/repos/repos/[project trees]'

Now how would that have happened? Particularly since one of the projects
within has never even been edited, other than the initial directory
structure import.

Correct -- though now that I've done the root repository checkout, I see
that the reason is that everything somehow wound up in

This is a world-readable server, so feel free to do a checkout or view logs.

What's interesting about the above is this:

svn log svn://svn.killersoft.com/repos/ -v

There's no sign that I intentionally (or even accidentally) added a new
/repos/repos directory.

I haven't done this yet, since based on what I found above, I suspect they
won't work. Let me know if you still want me to try this ...
