Yes you are spot on, I used 1.4 of Tortoise, I downloaded the right version
and now it works fine with a new working copy.

A little more information on the Tortoise site could prevent users from
downloading the wrong version and experiencing these tiny hiccups I agree.

No matter, this is great software!

It has nothing to do with the relationship between the client and
server, it has everything to do with the working copy format generated
by various different clients. In this case, I imagine you downloaded
a prerelease version of tortoisesvn 1.4, which generates a new working
copy format, but a command line client made from subversion 1.3.
Tortoise updated your working copy to the new 1.4 format, but 1.3
doesn't know how to read it.

The real problem here is that the 1.4 version of tortoise shouldn't
even have been available, but the tortoise guys like to jump the gun
and stick prerelease code places where users end up downloading it.
