Upgrade to 1.0.3 ASAP - the Windows binaries were just released. There is a
serious security fix in 1.0.3 that requires an immediate upgrade (especially if
you have a publically accessible repository).

As others have already pointed out, the -N flag doesn't work like that (at least
not consistently). You should also not rely on the -N to be part of your
security model. Subversion is not Source[un]Safe; you need to examine what you
really need, rather than trying to recreate your existing SS model exactly in SVN.

I'll try and check this out if I can; this may be a bug in the Win32 client,
since there is no problem doing this with the Unix client.
