RE: "same inode" problems with cygwin svn client

as a side note, windows users can use emacs w/out cygwin.

(nothing against cygwin... just wanted to point out emacs' ubiquity.)

Hey, cygwin isn't quite that evil, it gives windows users a breath of fresh

another 500+ really useful unix tools and libraries.

There was a circular directory structure and somehow deleting it from the
bottom-up cured it, not sure why. I haven't had the problem again today,
but I am encountering other problems with svn and directories. (see other
