I can no longer duplicate that problem.

In addition, the TSVN version I used when doing that "bad" commit was
a very early nightly built, probably a few months old. I upgraded to
the RC3 right after that commit, so I think that the current 1.5 is
not responsible.

I am sorry for panicking and apologize for the noise I produced on
this list, and wish you a successful Subversion release.
