Can't open '...': Is a directory error

  I am moving a Subversion repository from machine to another

        From: Fedora Core 4 with Subversion 1.2.0

        To: Debian 4.0 with Subversion 1.4.2

I used the standard method described, for example, on


Now when we do checkouts on the new machine, sometimes it works fine
and other times we get errors like

        svn: In directory 'vesgen/samples/orig_1999'
        svn: Can't open 'vesgen/samples/orig_1999/.svn/tmp/8DPOv.
16-6-8C.P1#C8.TL.tmp.tmp': Is a directory


        svn: Can't open file 'vesgen/reports/.svn/lock': Is a directory

I did some searches but I can't find any information about this kind
of error. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.
