Ok. Well, you could really help me by doing this:

- make sure test.dll is in use.
- run update (which bails out)
- look in the .svn/ directory and send me all log.* files you find there

From the log files, I should be able to deduce which part of the code
it is that generates this error; they'll also greatly help to
reproduce the problem.

bye,

Erik.
