Re: "stdin: is not a tty" warning message while running 'svn' command.

It stumped me for awhile, I kept on getting the above error message
whenever I did a svn command. It was a warning only, continued to run the
commands just fine.

After checking google for solutions, and scratching my head some more. I
finally found out the problem.

'bash' is my default shell, with '~/.bashrc' file containing the command
        mesg y

As soon as I took this out, or put it inside an "if statement" to check
for interactive vs tty, the warning message went away.

So in case anyone else is running into this issue, check for commands in
your home directory (or global includes) '.cshr', '.shrc', '.bashrc',
etc.. for any command which always assumes 'standard tty mode'.

Hopefully, this message will help others who also stumble across the same
