OK, I tried this and it failed. Now things look bad...

When I update, I get,

"Error: Failed to add directory 'C:\perk\research\polaritons': object of
the same name already exists"

and when I commit I get

"Error: File already exists: filesystem '/svn/perk/db', transaction
'9-1', path '/research/papers/jvst03' "

What's worrying me is that all of the directories within research/ now
do not have any TSVN icons. What does that mean? Is something really
wrong with the repo?

Man, when something goes wrong, why does it have to be on "research"
instead of "stupid_stuff", "misc", or "porn" -- all those worked fine. :)

thanks a lot guys,
