And it looks correct to me.

I'm a bit confused by that error message myself...

But why are you checking out a working copy to a location where you
already have a working copy?

Does it work if you check out to a different directory?

svn co svn://foo:7555/test/svn1/a /somewhere-else

If so, and if your /s working copy works (w.r.t. svn update and svn
commit and so on) then I'd say there is no problem.
