Hi there,

I have just discovered the cause of the problem: one of my ~/www/
working copies was actually a symlink to another place in the filesystem
(that did indeed contain a real working copy) - this symlink was created
by me within a day or two of upgrading to 1.1.

I think svn should possibly have complained about the symlink, or at
least not got confused when traversing it. I had to 'svn cleanup' the WC
it pointed to after svn errored out.

A few more error messages produced were less than clear, but since this
is a well known problem, I'll save on bandwidth by not discussing it. ;)
