You're not supposed to cross-post to both lists. This issue looks like a user-group issue, as it does not help the developers create the next release of subversion.

I've seen similar problems to this before, which were usually caused either by a directory tree exceeding the maximum path length in Windows, or filenames that have weird characters in them.

You could checkout an empty directory, to which you want to import these files, and then move the files into that directory, do an add & commit. That might get around the problem somehow.

If windows clients are on wireless, you might plug in the wire (to reduce the chance that you're having network flakiness.)

And finally, you could try copying the tree onto a linux machine and commit from there. All of this might give you more information about exactly what is causing the problem.
