Thanks for the heads-up. I have tried it with the 1.56 client (our
server is v1.5.0) and it seems to be working correctly with that client

You should upgrade your Subversion. I am unable to reproduce this
problem with svn 1.6.1 on Mac OS X:

$ svn export http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/nonexist
svn: URL 'http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/nonexist' doesn't exist
