Re: svnsync not syncing repo-content

OK, we finally upgraded the master-server to 1.6.5 - the mirror-server is
still 1.6.3.
After running the svnsync process from scratch, the same problem persists
:-(

I found out something pretty strange.
On the mirror-server that should run the target-repo, running svn against
the master-server reveils empty revisions for some, but not all repos:

svn log -r 0:HEAD svn://mastersvn/repo

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r1 | (no author) | (no date) | 1 line

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r2 | (no author) | (no date) | 1 line

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r3 | (no author) | (no date) | 1 line

........... all is empty.

Running the same command on ANY other machine reveils the correct
information.

What might be broken on the mirror-machine?
What might be the reason that some repos show the proper logs and some not?
I just upgraded svn (client+server) yesterday to 1.6.5 using collabnet's
RPM.
And, most of all, why does the svn-command not report any warning or
error-message?
