Use 'svn cat http://server/path/to/file > file.server' to dump out
exactly what the server thinks it has. You could also check out the
containing directory using the 1.5 client in some temporary folder, to
see what the text-base looks like (just running 'svn up' in the old
checkout won't do you any good because the working copy is already up to

No, I'm saying that 1.4 or better clients work *better* with 1.4 or
better servers. There are backend storage changes, over the wire
compression changes, and better streaminess (fewer roundtrips) with
newer client/servers. All newer 1.x clients are required to maintain
interoperability with older 1.x servers (the obverse is also true, newer
1.x servers work with older 1.x clients). The newer clients just work
better with the newer server.
