"malformed network data"

Hi, folks,

I've search the archives of this and the dev list to no avail.

I'm trying to set up svnserve on Mac OS X 10.3.7. I've grabbed the
1.1.2 non-Fink build from
http://metissian.com/projects/macosx/subversion/ and I've installed it
in the usual manner.

I created a user called svnowner and put him in group staff.

I've created a repository called /svnroot, and used

$ svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /svnroot

to create the repository. I then chown'ed /svnroot to svnowner:staff.

I made sure my /etc/services file included the svn port (it's included
by default in OS X), and added an svn entry to my xinetd.d directory.

$ netstat -a | grep svn

returns

tcp4 0 0 *.svn *.* LISTEN

so I assume we're listening on the proper port.

Now, if I use the svn client to do anything involving the server, e.g.,
given a tree in ~/devel/foo,

macaroon:~/devel andy $ svn import foo svn://macaroon

I always get the following error (after my editor pops up and asks me
for my comments):

subversion/libsvn_ra_svn/marshal.c:722 (apr_err=210004)
svn: Malformed network data

I tried installing the 1.1.1 build and got the same error.

Does anyone have any idea what causes this and how can I fix this?

Thanks,
