Correct. Subversion doesn't want to overwrite files/directories that
already exist that it doesn't "control."

Sounds like you wanted to do an in-place import.
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#in-place-import but at this
point, you may be best off renaming (and delete once you're sure you
can get everything back out of Subversion) the current directory and
doing a checkout.
