("svn ci aborts if it encounters the root directory"). It's fixed in
trunk, but not in 1.4.x. If you are able to recompile trunk, it might
be useful to find out what commit fixed it, so that we can determine
whether we could backport it to 1.4.4).

> Running the 1.5 client without installing worked just fine. Could I run it that way for good until 1.5 is released?

If it's working for you and you don't have any other programs that use
Subversion's libraries, sure. Be aware that trunk is nowhere near as
well-tested as 1.4.x, even for the non-new features.
