You should show us actual commands and actual error messages. It's
hard to know what's happening with just a description. If you can
provide a small testcase (a script beginning with the creation of an
empty repository, populating it with whatever data is necessary,
ending with the error you're getting) that would be most helpful. It
would also help to know what OS you have on the client and server,
what version of Subversion you have on the client and server, via
what access method the repository is being served, and whether your
repository backend is BDB or FSFS.
