Repository Version Check Feature Request

First of all Tortoise SVN is a great tool! Thank you for all your hard work.

First a little background to describe the issue.
My development machine is a Mac OSX system running VMWare with a Guest
Windows XP system. I have my Mac User directory shared with windows
as a mapped drive.
I have repositories checked out both to my Windows drive and the
shared Mac drive. The repositories on the Mac drive are checked out
and updated from the Mac command line, but I view the files in

The problem is that every once in a while, I will accidentally do an
update to a Mac repository from within Windows. Instantly before I
can cancel, Tortoise SVN upgrades the version number of all of the
.svn files. If I then go back to Mac and attempt any SVN operations,
I will get the following error:

svn: This client is too old to work with working copy '.'; please get
a newer Subversion client
On Mac, svn -version returns:
Subversion command-line client, version 1.4.4.
My request is:
Would it be possible to add a check in Tortoise SVN where it will
prompt the user for confirmation before updating the .svn files when
the version difference is a major one?
Thanks in advance,
