I believe the problem is that 'list*' is in the 'cl' package, but
vc-svn.el doesn't have

   (require 'cl)

anywhere.  For some people it won't be an error, because they already
have 'cl' loaded for some other reason; but in a pristine Emacs like
yours, it fails.

Stefan, would you rather require 'cl', or just rewrite
'vc-svn-checkin' to not use 'list*'?

Shawn, in the meantime, see if putting 

   (require 'cl)

in your .emacs fixes the problem.
