Thanks. After your reply I ran more examples and reviewed my command history
on my desktop. I found that when I ran the following on the local desktop:
$ svn checkout file:///path/to/project/trunk project
it downloaded the project files without the trunk/ branches/ or tags/
subdirectories. I then tried a similar command on my remote laptop (adding
the extra "project" to the end):
$ svn checkout svn+ssh://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/path/to/project/trunk project
It is not altogether clear to me how the extra "project" is interpreted.
Anyway it works.
