No, I wasn't logged into the Terminal as root, but your comment did
provide me with illumination: I ran the command as an Applescript do
shell script *with administrator privileges*! I'd needed that for the
chown -R www and then mindlessly copied it. I've just rerun it
without administrator priviliges and everything works fine now. What
a relief. Thank you very much.

By the way, if there are others who want to use XCode with Subversion
1.4, you'll find that as soon as you try to activate Subversion you
get anUncaught Exception: -[NSCFArray addObject:]: attempt to insert
nil. Apparently the problem is caused by Subversion using a different
format for some crucial file in 1.4 (1.3 doesn't have that problem
but is not available in MacPorts). The problem might be fixed in a
next update of XCode, but in the meantime I've used a SIMBL hack I
found at
I'm not fond of using hacks but this one is easy to remove when the
update comes around and, even more importantly, it works! This may be
really old news to others on the list, but I thought I'd mention it.
