I just got different results from my server at home (different project,
different repository).

$ svn list
svn://localhost/agilerules/devel/trunk/todo.txt
todo.txt

$ svn co
svn://localhost/agilerules/devel/trunk/todo.txt
svn: URL 'svn://localhost/agilerules/devel/trunk/todo.txt' refers to a
file, not a directory

However, I still get
$ svn export svn://localhost/agilerules/devel/trunk/todo.txt
svn: Cannot replace a directory from within

I thought of the ultra-ugly hack of using "svn cat bla > myfile", but I
would rather not do that long-term. Likewise, since the lib directory has
large libraries in it, I would rather not check out all of lib into a
temporary working copy and copy what I need from that.
