As well as this behaviour, I am finding that svn-import no longer
imports Subversion repositories :-((((

        Shared repository (format: 2a)
          shared repository: .
        |> bzr info trunk
        Repository branch (format: 2a)
          shared repository: .
          repository branch: trunk
        Related branches:
          parent branch:
        |> bzr svn-import .
        bzr: ERROR: Not a branch: "".                           
        |> svn ls

Basically bzr-svn isn't what it used to be :-((
