subversion problem svn: Malformed network data

every time I do commit project with subversion as vcs, I get
Error:svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Malformed network data
(IDEA 5.1.2)
however, everything is correctly committed into the repository.
workaround is to do update project, then IDEA "makes all files black" and all is ok.

Subversion Server = svnserve, Version 1.4.2 (r22196) on Fedora Core 6

Anybody has an idea, why this occurs and how to fix it?

Is the svn plugin incompatible with Tortoise SVN?
Seems like adding a directory via Tortoise SVN, or calling an update via Tortoise,
-> IDEA thinks the folders are no longer under version control.

Hello Michael,

If you have switched your SVN working copy to version 1.4 with TortoiseSVN,
then no, IDEA 5.1.2 is not compatible with this working copy format. You'll
need to upgrade at least to version 6.0.5.

Note that IDEA 6 incorporates a lot of bugfixes in the Subversion support
library (svnkit), and we don't plan to backport any of these to IDEA 5 (nor
release any other bugfixes for IDEA 5).
