installation of svn rev 7674 will hose svn's wc for pre 7674 clients

Hi!

I found that when I was running svntest script:

You build your svn from post 'workind dir format 3' sources,
then do make install, which one will call new one svnversion,
which one will update your wc-format flag.

After that you try access your wc with your old client, and result
is:

svn info data/svn_stuff/svn/trunk
svn: Path is not a working copy directory
svn: 'data/svn_stuff/svn/trunk' is not a working copy

cat data/svn_stuff/svn/trunk/.svn/format
3

svn --version
svn, version 0.32.1 (r7497)
   compiled Nov 4 2003, 16:03:52

You could simulate that behavior by building r7674, and using it's
svnversion binary for your current working copy. After that it is
hosed for pre 7674 clients.

So, perhaps this is not a bug, but an anomaly, which is worth a
mention somewhere?

Secondly, why is svnversion doing write operations to my working copy?
I found that is quite interesting.

BR, Jani
