I've had a lot of problems with the "import" command creating subdirectories
or not when doing the import. In particular, when creating a "trunk", for
something called "project", I kept winding up with
http://server/repo/project/trunk/project, instead of the expected
http://server/repo/project/trunk/. It seemed to work best if I made sure
there was no "trunk" directory already in place.
