I'll look into it.

Yes this is exactly the reason.
Although the company is quite new to SVN we are already using branches
for features/bugs, having 'user' branches as well would be over
complicated for our situation.

Ideally software fit around my workflow, rather than having me adapt
to it's (like having to commit to backup), but if there underlying
layers are not up to the job then so be it.

Thanks for the help,
