Ok; I finally removed it by proceeding that way :
1) removing all packages related to subversion
2) finding all files on the server with "svn" in their name and a
modification date and time close to the "make" ones, checking and removing
most of them.
3) reinstalling all subversion packages

This seems to solve the problem (after redoing the "svnadmin load" command).

I just found a way to do that.
Using lenny-backports : http://backports.debian.org/
That way, it is possible to upgrade up to 1.6.12
