Thanks for the suggestion.
Rotering suggested much the same thing, but fixed it by grabbing a new
subversion from the repository.

This brings me to how I should start patching:
I could either grab the latest subversion trunk from the subversion
repository,
Or do ad-hoc patches for each issue I trip over.

Which method would people suggest is best to maximise subversion stability?
