newbie has repository format problem

I received the following error when trying to checkout a project:

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

From my searching in the archives of this list and other places, it seems
that this would indicate that I'm using an old version of subversion (pre
1.4) that is expecting the older repository format, but that doesn't
appear to be the case. Here's the whole story:

I created a repository and imported a project on one system (running
NetBSD). The subversion version there is

> svn --version
     svn, version 1.4.2 (r22196)
        compiled Jan 4 2007, 04:10:54

Then I attempted to checkout the project on my laptop (a Mac) through ssh:

     $ svn checkout svn+ssh://...

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

The version there is

     $ svn --version
     svn, version 1.4.4 (r25188)
        compiled Jun 14 2007, 14:23:02

Can anyone tell me why this version 1.4.4 is expecting format 3, or what I
can do about it?
