SVN 1.8.1 Errors - Show Log and Commit New Files

I have recently updated to TSVN 1.8.1, which of course uses SVN 1.8.1 as its command-line basis. Our server has been running 1.2 and has not been changed (apart from Windows updates) for a LONG time.
(Yes, I know 1.2 is very old. However, we're an automotive company and changes to our tools can result in issues with customer approvals. Nonetheless, an upgrade is on the "to-do" list.)
Having said that, there are now MANY people posting to the TSVN mailing list about these two issues.
My platforms are 32-bit Windows 7 and Windows XP, but it has also been reported on 64-bit Windows.
First issue: When doing a "Show Log", the client says it can't contact the server and asks if people (including us) want to go offline, then puts up an HTTP 501 error.
Second issue: When committing new files, we get the message that one of them 'already exists'. I've found as a workaround that doing a clean checkout to a NEW directory, then copying everything across and running a commit will work - once.
After discussions on the TSVN mailing list, I've run command-line versions of both, with the following results (edited to hide customer names):
C:\Customer>svn log -v ./
svn: E200007: Additional errors:
C:\Customer>svn commit ./ -m "Committing via command line"
