I've already read that in the mailing list archive.
However, I use TortoiseSVN (not supporting copy, move and merge operations
yet) and an external diff application on the client side; are there still
problems to be expected.
In case of fire I would just execute svn.exe commands directly on my
machine.

BTW, I got a very positive first impression of Subversion and TortoiseSVN
today. Thanks for these great tools!
