With an 1.3.x Subversion client (not matter if GUI or CL), that should
be 'Project/_svn' if the dot_net_hack variable is set.

The only thing I can think of right now which would lead to such a
* The env variable is set (no reboot after that)
* a checkout with the CL client creates _svn dirs
* TSVN is started from the shell, which was started *before* the env
variable was set: that means that process (and all that are started from
such a process) don't have that env variable set.
* TSVN still thinks it has to use .svn dirs because it doesn't know
about the env variable being set.

So: reboot (or at least restart the shell by killing all "explorer"
processes) after setting the env variable!

One other thing: the TSVN nightlies are built against Subversion 1.4.x,
which uses a new wc format. Once the wc is updated, it can't be used
anymore with older clients.
