Re: upgrade working copy to 1.8 on windows 7 when repository has linux symlinks

Be careful. Sharing a working copy to access it with clients from different
OS's is not recommended. I don't know if there are any cross-platform
compatibility guarantees. 1.8 should be better because it uses sqlite, but
I'm not sure about the pristines database. You may also get into trouble
with line ending styles.

I have used the same WC on two OS's before but only ever used TortoiseSVN
to manage the subversion operations.
