The problem was never solved as easily as creating a bin directory
when I ran into it. If this is a solution for you, then why not just
add the Bin directory to the repository. This would accomplish the
same thing and not require code to cover some specific case. It makes
no sense for this to be a subversion feature to cover up a vs2003 bug.
