Hello Simon,
Thank you for your reply.

The OFBiz people provide weekly snapshots as a convenience. I can only
presume that the developer checked the revision out with an svn client
and zipped it up. What version he used, I don't know.

In any case I would not be able to check a 100MB working copy out from
their repository as we are on a slow dial-up connection. The UK has only
99% ADSL coverage and we are in the 1% - 28Kbits/s at most.

The whole world is trying to download it today - their server isn't
coping. :-(

OK, but it ships with these libraries rather than relying on svn being
installed. Therefore it should be neither here nor there which command
line version I have installed.

I downloaded the normal (.svn) version of Tortoise and rebooted. My
other working copies are handled just fine.
Just the OFBiz wc is bizarre. After installing 1.2.1 and rebooting, it
initially didn't show the overlay icons. As I go into the directories
and back up they begin to appear on the directories. Most or all files
remain unrecognized.

Is there any version of Subversion that is /not/ supposed to have a tmp
folder in the .svn folders? If there isn't, then this would indeed seem
a broken check-out.
