Thanks, Nico....that indeed turn out to be one of our problems.

The other was that the repository used a custom pre-commit hook script that was originally
written for the Korn shell, which wasn't installed on the new server.

Thanks again for the help!

run" with this several months ago, the result seemed to work fine.

Then you didn't get the same file permissions and didn't import any modified pre-commit, post-commit,
or other such scripts. I suspect the file permissions, especially if you did the "svnadmin
load" as a root user and didn't set "apache" write permissions for the repository itself.
Do some "ls --al" checks of the permissions on your old repo, and review the Apache configurations
or svnserve or svn+ssh settings, however you provide access.
