1) I would assume you have a file somewhere in your source
<path_to_import> that is locked by another application / user and hence
Subversion cannot read it's contents to import it into the repository.
Do a search for your "tempfile.tmp" in the <path_to_import> and delete /
move it outside the <path_to_import> :)
Reboot the machine hosting <path_to_import> - WinXP (esp. servers) can
get in a twist over file locks if a process hangs.

2) As this is a new repository, you might want to save yourself some
future agro, and un-install & downgrade Apache to Apache/2.0.x (Win32) -
if you want to use mod_dav_svn.so / the subversion-python-bindings -
Subversion 1.3.2 and Apache 2.2.x are built with different versions of
Python and a lot of the modules / add-ons will get very upset trying to
talk to both. A setup that i've found easiest to get to work is :
Apache/2.0.54 (Win32) DAV/2 SVN/1.3.2 PHP/5.1.4 mod_python/3.2.8
