SVN: Could not open requested SVN filesystem

Ah, the most dreaded SVN error of them all. It's not even showing up in my Apache logs, either, just on trying to commit.

When I try to add a file to the repository via the following command, I get the error:
add -N F:\beetlemed-1.7\workspace\rootClient\src\com\beetlemed\webapp\data\
    A         F:/beetlemed-1.7/workspace/rootClient/src/com/beetlemed/webapp/data/
commit -m "no more broken commits?" (24 paths specified)
    Sending        F:/beetlemed-1.7/workspace/beetlemed/src/com/beetlemed/webapp/chat/
    Adding         F:/beetlemed-1.7/workspace/beetlemed/src/com/beetlemed/webapp/dao/
    No such file or directory
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem
svn: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem
It seems that this error only shows up when I try to add a file to the repo, not when I try to update. I've already run chmod +rwx -R repository, so it should have all of the permissions it could possibly need. The only thing I don't know about is adding it to a group. I don't think my server has an apache group, so I wouldn't know where to start and what to do with that.

This problem happens from time to time, but I can't seem to shake it this time. I'm running SVN over HTTPS on Apache 2.x.

though I'm pretty new to SVN, you should try
svn cleanup
and then try to add and commit again.
