Re: Working Copy in Inconsistent State

Sorry - that might have been usefull:

Client OS: RedHat ES 4 (Nahant Update 3), linux 2.6.9-34.EL.smp, svn
1.1.4(r13838) on Dual CPU AMD Opteron

Server OS: RedHat ES 4 (Nahant Update 3), linux 2.6.9-34 EL, svn
1.1.4(r13838) on Single CPU Celeron, using svnserve to access
remotely.

(yeah the server is a POS compared to the client, long story to do with who
owns what and stuff).
