I had a similar problem a couple of days ago. I am using Windows so
things may be different for you. What I discovered is that relative
paths do not work very well in svn urls. When you do import or
checkout, make sure you use full path names to your repository and your
project directory. On Windows, this includes the drive letter. On
Linux/Unix you may need to add another slash at the beginning of your
repository path.
