Malformed XML error on initial checkout

From: Steven Vasilogianis <svasilogiani_at_kmrrec.org>

I've just created a repository like so:

$ svnadmin create project

And imported some data into it:

$ svn import .
Adding [snip]

[many lines snipped, nothing out of the ordinary]

Committed revision 1.

All is fine up until here, but I get an error when I try to check out:

$ svn co svn+ssh://steven@localhost/usr/share/steven/project/repos/project

 A [snip]

[many lines snipped]
svn: Malformed XML: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1623

I am currently playing with this on my local FreeBSD 4.10 workstation, but I
first found the problem on our SUSE 9.2 server.

I have searched the archives, as well as google, and found that this problem
is usually the result of either a file with a "weird" character in its name,
or that the log file in some .svn directory contains malformed xml,
neither of
which I was able to find (I have only one svn log file, and it looks like
valid XML).

$ svn --version
