Never heard of a problem like this before... you're the first.

But frankly, I don't see how it *couldn't* be a user error, exactly as
you describe. Any user can run 'svnadmin create blah' inside a working
copy and then mistakenly 'svn add' and 'svn commit' the blah/
directory. (Or just 'svn import' it.)

Another likely culprit is that a misbehaving shell script or cron job
is doing the same thing.

Also, you have history: why don't you find out who added the
mysterious files, and when? Run 'svn log -v' on the root URL of your
repository. There's no need to wonder where they came from.
