No. I was referring to Marks problem (although I'm not sure if I
fully understood, what his problem actually is after reading his last

We have one set of sources that are compiled to text mode applications
on Unix and to GUI applications on Windows. Mark uses symlinks in his
source tree. So my suggestions refer to environments where the source
tree is used on both platforms or where the working copies make use
of file system specifica such as symlinks.

In these cases it's better to use native clients: Windows has no way
of creating working copies with symlinks and in heterogenous environments
you might need a native client to interpret svn:eol-style=native the
"native" way...

I understand from your mail that none of these assumptions matches
your environment, so it might be interesting to investigate further.

Re (1): Try the Windows CLI. I'd bet it's not much faster than TSVN so
I'd guess that the networking file system you use is the problem.

Re (2): Does TMerge show any differences? Do the file sizes of the file
and it's prestine copy in .svn/text-base differ?
You said, the files are marked as executable on Windows. Do you mean
svn:executable is set or that the executable bit is set if you inspect
the working copy created with TSVN from within Solaris?

Re (3): A replaced file? Can you be somewhat more specific?

Kind regards
