I took out most of my original post so this didn't get extremely long.

I tried the merge in the new Tortoise client, and I'm already
impressed with that. I doubt I'll switch, but may give it a shot when
it gets added to the subclipse site.

I did continue to get those errors in TortoiseSVN. I did an update
and that didn't fix the problem. I ended up just ditching the branch
I was working with. I created a new branch of the trunk, and merged
my changes into that. It was a MUCH smaller merge this way (someone
just did a huge merge into the trunk). This has already been mostly
done, so it's no longer an issue.

The repository does have external references. I'm at home right now,
when I'm at work tomorrow I'll look into project dependencies, and see
if there is a dependency issue. The project is based on the Eclipse
RCP Platform, I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
Anyway, I'll give more info tomorrow.

1.4.1 will probably be better for me then. I have several unversioned
files, and removing them ALL every commit will get annoying. I want
to see them though because I usually look through them to see if I
forgot anything that is supposed to be committed. I'm not definitely
going to do this, but I may use TortoiseSVN for commits. I'm very used
to the checkboxes dialog. I like being able to right-click and add an
unversioned file in the dialog, and everything that is unversioned
isn't committed by default. An option to choose between the two
dialog styles would be great, but I understand this probably isn't
feasible.
