I've just given the domain an extra 256MB of RAM to see if that made
the problem go away. Didn't, so guess you're right.

Good idea.
Just did that :-).

 # pwd
 # ls -l

 I typed this file and called it by the two-symbol name
 ctrl-shift-F1 ctrl-shift-F2.

 In order to tell `ls' not to be afraid, give it the `-N' flag.
 Give `less' the `-r' flag.

Shame on me for trying to blame svn :-/.
Sorry for the noise, list.

Sounds fine. Doesn't make it go away, though:
 # export LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"
 # svn status
 svn: error: cannot set LC_ALL locale
 svn: error: environment variable LANG is en_GB.UTF-8
 svn: error: please check that your locale name is correct

Thanks again!
