This error message should be improved. svn should not assert here
but simply tell you that the URL is invalid.

The quick-start page is wrong.
You'll need to replace backslashes with forward slashes in the URL:
file:///h:/repos/my-repos/trunk etc.

I'm not seeing an assertion on BSD so perhaps the assertion problem
is specific to Windows. On BSD I see:
svn: E180001: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'file:///h:%5Crepos%5Cmy-repos'
svn: E180001: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: E180001: Unable to open repository 'file:///h:%5Crepos%5Cmy-repos'
