SVN 1.5 - Can't access repository upgraded from 1.4.x format

I hope I'm doing something stupid and easily remedied.

I have a repository that was created under 1.4.x. I have moved a copy
of that repository to a different machine and verified that I can
access it using the 1.4.x client, both on the local machine and from a
different machine. I am using the svn+ssh protocol in both cases.

After verifying correct operation with svn 1.4.x, I installed the
1.5.0 release. I verified that "svn --version", "svnadmin --version",
and "svnserve --version" all report 1.5.0 on the test machine.

I could still access my 1.4.x format repository from the test machine
using SVN 1.5.

Here is where things started to go wrong.

I made a copy of the 1.4 repository and verified that I could access
it using the 1.5 release.

I converted my 1.4 copy to 1.5 format by running svnadmin upgrade on it.

I could not access the upgraded repository:
svn info svn+ssh://localhost/Users/rmanbert/svn15/il6-1185-svn15-
svn: Expected FS format '2'; found format '3'

I tried upgrading the repository by doing a svnadmin dump on the 1.4
format repository, then loading it into a newly created repository. I
did this on the machine that is now running SVN 1.5. When I attempt to
access the resulting repository, I get the same result.

I tried doing svnadmin dump on the repository copy that I had
originally moved to the test machine. I did the dump from the original
machine that is my repository server, so it was dumped by SVN 1.4.4. I
copied the dumpfile to the test machine and loaded it into a newly
created repository using SVN 1.5. When I try to access the new
repository I get the same error.

So, to summarize, I have upgraded my repository to 1.5 format three
different ways:

1.4 --> svnadmin(1.5) upgrade --> 1.5
1.4 --> svnadmin(1.5) dump --> svnadmin(1.5) create newRepo -->
svnadmin(1.5) load newRepo --> 1.5
1.4 --> svnadmin(1.4.4) dump --> svnadmin(1.5) create newRepo -->
svnadmin(1.5) load newRepo --> 1.5

In all cases, when I try to access the 1.5 repository, I get the error
svn: Expected FS format '2'; found format '3'

Can someone please tell me what I'm doing that is wrong?
