Re: Clobbering source file through merge -- can I recover?

From: Håvard Vold <hovoid_at_hotmail.com>

The client is TortoiseSVN 1.3.0

The server is on Linux (Red Hat), with Apache 2.x . This was installed with
the most recent standard versions of Apache and Subversion.

I assume that this is a usage error, but the idiots, including yours truly,
are too smart to allow for the existence of idiotproof software. What I was
wondering if there are undo capabilities that could help this set of idiots?
