Hm, that sounds like an authorization problem (access denied, ...).
Are you using path-based authorization (an authz file referenced by
your svnserve.conf)?

I'm not sure (not much experience with path-based authz), but maybe
you're being hit by issue #3242:
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3242

If I understand correctly from that issue, checkouts work, but some
operations (notably copying) fail, if you don't have read access to
the root of the repository. It doesn't talk about diff and log though
...
