If you mean you tried to view file://... in your web browser, yah,
that's a known "issue". Subversion's use of file://... isn't
*exactly* what you'd expect here. A browser using file://... is
expecting all the versioned files and directories to exist as literal
items in your regular filesystem. But they don't--they live in a
database system.
