SVN1.4 reworks the working copy structure to make it more efficient. Using a 1.4
client automatically updates the WC so it will no longer work with earlier
clients. If you use multiple clients, they all have to be 1.4 (or later). The
only way to get back to 1.3.x is to do a fresh checkout using a 1.3.x client.

But all is not lost. A compiled version of the 1.4 svn Windows client is
available from the TSVN nightly build site. I think it is built from the HEAD of
the svn 1.4.x branch, so it is not necessarily the exact RC4 code. And as it's
not the official release, and TSVN is not the official supplier, we cannot offer
any guarantees that it will work correctly, and we don't offer any support for
it. But it might help you get out of a hole.

SVN requires a minimum 4 week soak period from the first release candidate. I
would guess 1.4.0 should be out late August, early September, closely followed by
TSVN 1.4.0
