svnsync: DAV request failed

Hi all,

I would like to svnsync a repo running on a FreeBSD server to my local
laptop running Windows XP.
I followed the instructions in the SVN book, but when I do

svnsync initialize http://svn.mycompany.com svn://localhost --username
<myusername> --password <mypassword>

all I get is

svnsync: DAV request failed; it's possible that the repository's
pre-revprop-change hook either failed or is non-existent
svnsync: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged

I can access both repos, the target one was just created, nothing in
there yet.
It does not seem to matter if I use svn://localhost or anything else,
the error message is the same.
I tried running svnsync on the server and on the local laptop, same

server# svn --version
svn, version 1.4.2 (r22196)
   compiled Jan 15 2007, 17:41:59

C:\Laptop> svn --version
svn, version 1.4.4 (r25188)
   compiled Jun 8 2007, 18:49:42

From what I read in the SVN book, I only need to create
pre-revprop-change hooks on the target server which would be
pre-revprop-change.bat, but considering that it does not seem to matter
what target server I use, I conclude that the problem is on the source

I have no hooks in place on the server source side at all, do I need any
there ?
I tried creating a dummy pre-revprop-change which just exits 0, but same
Do I possibly have to upgrade to the latest SVN version ?

What else could I be doing wrong ?

Any help would be appreciated,
