Well, good news and not so good news....

- good news is that I was wrong, I upgraded to neon 0.26 again, and svn

- the not-so-good news is that, am unable to figure what caused the error
last week. Am suspecting my usage of the gentoo portage tree. Maybe some
gentoo user could help me out here.

This is what I did last week:
      emerge neon (which upgraded from whatever I had to 0.26)
      ran svn (gave me 'unable to find libneon.so.26' error) - This is
where I doubt the portage tree
      copied /usr/lib/libneon.so.25 to /usr/lib/libneon.so.26 for testing
      svn gave me the 'Malformed URL' error

In an attempt to solve the problem:
      masked the neon 0.26 package and downgraded to 0.25.3
      svn worked

Today, while trying to debug:
      unmasked neon 0.26
      emerge neon
      svn worked

      (Pl. note that I 'emerge sync'ed twice last week)
