Re: [Subclipse-users] Client too old error on OS X

Like I said, Mark, I have seen the behavior on both OS X and Win XP.

The part about the .svn/entries file changing form is not wrong.

The part about Subclipse and svnant working correctly with a working copy
that *had not* been touched by a new 1.4 command line client is not wrong.
This has been demonstrated on numerous machines here.

The part about Subclipse and svnant throwing the error Kristian refers to
with a working copy that *has* been touched by a new 1.4 command line client
is also not wrong. This, unfortunately, is happening across the department.

I made it abundantly clear that the issue was not the server, but the
working copy, and I stick by my guns that it is not working correctly.
