Martin sent me his logs privately. We've been trying to recreate the
error with trunk, but we couldn't. Could you try to do the same with a
1.4 client?

** BEWARE **
Don't access working copies you mean to be using with 1.3 with 1.4!
They will be inaccessible from 1.3 afterwards: 1.4 uses a different
format number and automatically upgrades for you.

bye,

Erik.
