Re: Error performing commit

Stefan,

Thanks for the response. I found that reference in the FAQ, but it
doesn't appear to apply. No upper/lower case differences, no special
characters. I found something else that suggested doing a "Cleanup". I
did that and it created the directory structure the commit apparently
wants. The commit worked after that, although it has happened again
since then. The "Cleanup" fixed it again. Not sure what's going on
yet.
