From what you tell me, it is expected behaviour: by using svn:// you
look inside the database that you see when you 'ls' or 'dir' on the
server machine. What you see when you use 'dir' on a repository is
purely the database which stores the virtual filesystem Subversion
uses to version your documents. If you want to see what is *in* your
filesystem, you can use either the svn command with a file:// url, or
you can use the svnlook utility.

Well, not really, since you did not provide a list of commands you
executed for either case (using svn:// or ssh), nor did you say what
output you had expected. But I hope I provided you with the
information you need to resolve your problem.
