Stefan,

   I should clarify I never copied any directories around nor removed "svn/.tmp"
-- All I know is that every couple of weeks, I begin getting errors from TSVN
about these directories being missing and I am forced to re-checkout the
directory from the repository. Something is removing these directories but I
highly doubt it is the users. Is there a reason you couldn't just create
svn/.tmp if it is missing? Isn't this directory simply a temporary working
space? If not, please elaborate on what it's used for.

Thanks,
Gili
