It looks like the problem was the rpm for suse 9.3 (Subversion 1.2.1).
After compiling the source, the problem disappeared.

I still don't know the exact reason. Maybe it's a problem with the rpm
(although I installed rpms from different sources) or it's the problem
described above.

Hope this helps for others.
