Path already exists

Hi all-

Sorry to be such a noob, but I haven't found a satisfactory answer
anywhere via Google et al and this is intensely frustrating:

I have created an svn repository both locally and remote to another
machine where I alreadyh have Apache configured, and I get the same
error every time:

svn: Path 'file:///whatever' already exists

Here's what I'm doing:

$ svnadmin create /Users/ron/svn_test
$ ls ./svn_test
README.txt dav format locks
conf db hooks
$ vi nothing.txt
<add a couple of lines to nothing.txt>
$ svn import ./nothing.txt file:///Users/ron/svn_test -m "this will not work"
svn: Path 'file:///Users/ron/svn_test' already exists

This is all happening all of a sudden....I didn't upgrade svn, didn't
touch my machine. To be honest, I haven't *created* a repo for awhile,
I've just been happily working along but now I need to create some
more and I'm getting this.

This is on MacOS X 10.4 using svn 1.2.3 which I got as part of the
Fink project.

I'm sure I'm just doing something stupid, but the doubly stupid part
is that I have no idea what. I verified against the FAQ and the book,
but no joy.

Ron
