Ok, so an error occurred.

Since an error occurred, the import was aborted, so it is correct
that you should see no output from svn list since there is nothing in
the repository to list.

Also correct. No import occurred, so your repository still only has
revision 0, the initial empty revision.

What is /Volumes/bosotoraid? Is it a local disk or a mounted network
drive? Network drives can be problematic, so try a local disk
instead. If it is already a local disk, then try your internal hard
disk anyway, just to try a "completely normal" disk for comparison.
If it works there (and it should) then there is a problem of some
kind with this other disk you're using. If it's a network disk, how
are you accessing it? NFS? SAMBA? AppleShare? SAN? Switching the
connection method could improve the situation. A SAN connection
should definitely work, since that makes the disk a local disk as far
as the computer can see, but the others may not work.
