Just a wild stab in the dark, but try adding an extra / after the URL...

I almost never use import myself, though -- I prefer creating the trunk
folder directly in the repo and then checking it out. While it's empty
you can even check it out to an existing folder, and then you can 'svn
add' from there. Gives much better control of what's going on than 'svn
import' does.
