I never figured it out myself and neither could anyone I talked to.

When I had svn 1.5.x, I had no problems accessing my server, but Subversion
1.6 couldn't. I had several SysAdmins look at it, and they couldn't figure
it out. I asked the list, but no one here could either.

So, I just added it into /etc/hosts, and it worked.

I expect it's something with the way Subversion is calling the library
routines it needs to translate the domain name into a IP address. I bet
Subversion gets some sort of error back from those routines and believes it
can't find the host even though the host IP address was returned.

Could this be an IP6 thing? I have no idea, but it has something to do with
the way Subverion 1.6.x finds the Subversion repository host that is
different than Subversion 1.5.x.
