I, the doofus, stepped away from my keyboard for awhile and while I was
outside, the answer came to me: when I originally installed Subversion a few
weeks ago and started up svnserve, I did it with "svnserve -d -r /repos" ...
Then, being a newbie, I did everything else with "/repos" on the paths, and
didn't realize that created /repos/repos.

Never noticed it until I restarted, and started up svnserve *without* -r

Panic caused by the usual Number One cause: operator error.

My apologies to all -- all I'd suggest at this point is maybe some little
sidebar about this in the book or FAQ to protect doofuses like me from
themselves. : )

Thanks for your time, sorry for the list noise.
