I have tried to create a new FSFS repository, both with the svnadmin command
and via the TortoiseSVN interface, both work fine (in fact I created the
current FSFS repositories on my Windows laptop because they were initially
in the BDB format and had to be switched over to FSFS because our RH9 didn't
support the right version of BDB. So I did a dump and load to switch
formats, and then copied the resulting files up to the Linux box).
