The problem is most probably not with Subversion.
We get reports similar to yours quite a lot, and they usually are local
installation problems.

You most likely have a local problem with your installation of Subversion
and related software. Quite possibly your kdesvn libraries were linked
against a different set of libraries than they are combined with at runtime.

You don't mention if you're compiling kdesvn yourself, too.
If not done carefully, installing and running a mixture of vendor-provided
distribution packages and self-compiled binaries can cause subtle problems,
such as apparently random crashes, or unresolved symbol errors like you are
seeing. These can of course be fixed and worked around, but I'd like to
encourage you to use pre-compiled packages from your distribution vendor

Why are you compiling your own binaries? If you use binary packages
you won't have any such problems.

If your reason for compiling your own binaries is that you are using a
source-based Linux distribution, please seek help at the appropriate forum
of that distribution.
