Though based on the messages I've seen here, he isn't happy. Which
should not be surprising, the problems are with the setup. Win95/98/ME
has some big problems, if you've avoided them thus far you are
fortunate. The simplest solutions to most of the problems are
available with WinNT, Win2k, WinXP, etc. It appears it is simply an
unfortunate financial constraint which prevents the fixes from being
applied.

About all that can be done for Win98 users is to provide a little
sympathy :). I certainly wouldn't expect the Subversion developers to
spend much time on working around Microsoft's bugs, when Microsoft has
already fixed them in later OS releases. At least not today when most
developers have been off Win98 for years.
