I see I made a mistake here: import works with file:///drive on a
mapped drive. BUt the other commands (commit, checkout,
update) do nothing. You see at the lights of the switch that the
command passes into the network, but then nothing happens.
Neither there is a return to the command prompt. Waited several
minutes, but the thing was dead and I hit CTRL-C to get back to
the prompt. Maybe because on the other machine Subversion is
not set up yet? That would be far more strange. (I am starting
things slowly, first trying all things on one machine only, if things
go wrong others would not be put out of work. Only had been
curious about mapped network drives ...)
