Subversion error extra content at the end of the document

hi i’m getting a subversion error on the new repository i created through the web panel. anyone seen this before and/or know how to fix it?? please help! i tried googling and didnt find anything useful, though i may go through some more links… stumped at the moment.

svn --username whatever --password blahblah import libwacky
svn: E175002: Unable to connect to a repository at URL '
svn: E175002: The OPTIONS request returned invalid XML in the response: XML parse error at line 1: Extra content at the end of the document

this is driving me nuts!! i’ve tried connecting from home and from the machine at dreamhost… neither works. i’m about to give up trying to use svn altogether, it’s been a major hassle so far, as the panel repository creation tool seems pretty hit or miss.
