Thanks Matthew,
This is what happens when I shoot from the hip... :-(

We did get the subversion client running on a HP running 10.20, about 10
months ago. And we didn't need any threading libraries.
I can't remember what we did to make it work - we had a problem with
passwords longer than 8 chars and neon.

:-} (embarrassed smile)
