bdb -> fsfs migration hitches: expected '3', found '5'

Hi folks,

Sorry, but google and mailing list archives don't seem to be answering
it for me... I also apologize if this ends up being a TortoiseSVN
issue--I don't think it is, but it's possible, in which case I'll go
knocking on a different door.

After migrating my repository from bdb to fsfs (which required updating
to a more recent subversion package, since the older ones couldn't
handle the >2GB revisions from the dump file), I figured all I had to do
is replace the old repository directory with the new one.. which mostly
works.. except most of my old working copies can't sync up anymore.
They give the following error:

        Expected format '3' of repository; found format '5'

Here's the context:

Server: repository sits on a linux machine's file system out on the
internet. This server runs subversion 1.4.0 (r21228), a pre-compiled
debian package. (it used to be running 1.2.something, which was unable
to import my dump files with large revisions)

What works: a working copy on the same server, which access the
repository using a file:/// url. I could "svn up" and it didn't seem to
care that the repository's format had changed.

What doesn't: working copies on two windows machines (win2k and winxp),
using tortoisesvn 1.4.0 (build 7501) which is based on subversion 1.4.0.
  They access the repository with an svn+ssh:// url (and I type my unix
system password into plink each time I sync/commit). An update of the
existing working copy gives the above error. Interestingly enough, when
I try to check out a fresh copy, it also gives the above error.

I wish I still had my other working copy (also svn+ssh based) on an old
linux machine to test if that worked.. but no data there..

Any pointers?
