A very effective way to solve problems like this is to prefix the command in
question with "echo":

    $ echo svn update -r {2005-04-05}
    svn update -r 2005-04-05

Echo shows how the arguments are really being passed to svn.

You can also use "set -x" to get the shell to print out each command just
before it is called. ("set +x" turns that off.)
