I don't use the bash shell but here's a sequence of cmds that work
fine in the Windows XP command prompt:

cd \temp\svn
svnadmin create repo
mkdir import
time /t > import\test.txt
cd import
svn import -m"" . file:///c:/temp/svn/repo/
cd ..
mkdir wc
svn co file:///c:/temp/svn/repo wc

Interestingly, I tried to specify a directory as part of the svn
import command (as you were doing above) but svn always used the
current directory. I'm not sure if that's a bug but the easy
workaround is to change into the directory you're importing. HTH...
