It has been a longstanding policy of the Subversion project at any given time to support the latest major version and the previous major version. Therefore at this time Subversion < 1.7 is no longer supported. You should attempt to reproduce the issue with the server running Subversion 1.7 or later.
If you cannot upgrade the real server to 1.7 or later yet, you could set up a test server elsewhere, for example on your workstation, to see if upgrading would help with this problem. On the old server, you could "svnadmin dump" the repository into a file and then "svnadmin load" that file into your newer test server. Then see if you still experience the problem when you check out your working copies from the test server.
