checking out single files not possible?

Our build process requires that we retrieve single files from the
repository. Checking out entire directories seems to work fine but
unfortunately whenever a call is made to retrieve a single file I get
the following error:
svn: Attempted to create entry in non-directory parent

The calling syntax used to create this error is:
svn checkout file:///C:/Repositories/MyRepo/Utils/Libs/MyUtil.lib

My basic problem is that we have hundreds of .lib files in this
repository directory and I only want to retrieve one of them -- not the
entire directory with all of them. The strange thing is that subversion
creates a directory with the intended file name at the intended
destination. I have tried several variations on the above syntax but I
always get the same error and instead of checking out the intended file
subversion creates a directory with the file name.

Can someone help me out with the correct syntax or is subversion just
not able to check out single files?
I'm running subversion 1.0.2 on Windows 2000 SP4.
