You've confused the concepts of *working copy* and *repository*.
Working copy is where you make changes (e.g. using svn mkdir). The
repository is where those changes get stored when you say "svn
commit". You just tried to treat your repository as if it were a
woking copy. Which, it isn't.

You're using two different versions of subversion. Don't do that.
You've created the repository with a 1.6.x version of svnadmin and now
you're trying to read it with a 1.4.x version of svn. That can't work.
Make sure the svn command is also version 1.6.x.
