Make sure you distinguish between the two different format files. The format file directly in the repository root is not relevant to this question (AFAIR it has been "5" for a long time); look instead at the format file in the db directory in the repository root. For a newly-created repository under Subversion 1.6.17, format is "5" and db/format is "4
layout sharded 1000".
