Problem with svn co within Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX

(preface: Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX is a horrible product with a
perverse name. It is actually UNIX services for Windows, as it provides
UNIX commands and shells to Windows. But I have been mandated to use it,
and the ksh it provides.)

I am trying to implement a cross-platform build script using SFU for ksh
on WinXP. When the script gets up to the point of running "svn checkout",
the script simply exits. If I substitute some other command, it
continues on, but something is happenning with svn that's making the
script exit. Obviously, I am posting on on the SFU support website, too.

Here is the relevant part of the script:
    # If the working copy already exists, then do an update instead of a
     if [ -d ${TODIR}/.svn ]
                svn update ${REVARG} .
                 svn checkout ${REVARG} ${FROMURL} .
     echo "Status is '$status'"

When I run it , calling Subversion, I get:
+ [ -d /dev/fs/C/windevel/svn1/rogue/rw/.svn ]
+ svn checkout http://us00i3.devportal.net/svn/repos/rogue/rw .
A gordvec.h
A xvdlist.cc
A tvrtarry.cc
A tvsldict.h
A toolerr.h
A tpordvec.h
Checked out revision 16.

Then I end up back at the ksh prompt.

When I run the same exact command outside the script, it exits 0.

Any ideas?
