Maybe you're not aware that cvs2svn.py no longer uses the SWIG/Python

If your cvs2svn.py requires the bindings, then it is *very* old and
you should update.

Can you post the patch you made? (If you have time to write a log
message for it, that's great, but it's fine to just post the change if

Also, I'm not sure exactly what you mean by:

Could you describe precisely what happened?
