Hi Edmund,

You'd get this message if d:\svn\svn is not actually a working copy,
which seems appropriate to me, but this is also the result when
updating a working copy format which is too old (which I'm guessing is
what is happening to you). This is confusing at best:

Using a 1.7.0=dev client:

  C:\SVN\src-branch-1.6.x>svn --version -q

svn st (and every other subcommand I tried*) gives an error and a
helpful suggestion to upgrade:

  C:\SVN\src-branch-1.6.x>svn st
  ..\..\..\subversion\svn\status-cmd.c:256: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\svn\util.c:960: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_client\status.c:283: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_wc\node.c:146: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_wc\wc_db.c:4976: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_wc\wc_db.c:3087: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_wc\wc_db.c:1005: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_wc\wc_db.c:384: (apr_err=155036)
  ..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_wc\upgrade.c:710: (apr_err=155036)
  svn: Working copy format of 'C:\SVN\src-branch-1.6.x' is too old (10);
  please run 'svn upgrade'

* Except svn update, which treats the old WC format as if it isn't a WC at all:

  C:\SVN\src-branch-1.6.x>svn up
  Skipped '.'
  Summary of conflicts:
    Skipped paths: 1

svn update should return the same error message as every other
subcommand, unless I'm missing something.
