1.3.x clients should be able to communicate with 1.4 servers just
fine. The error you're reporting isn't a server<->client issue, but
rather a purely client issue. The working copy you're using was
created or updated using a 1.4 client, and due to changes made to the
WC format in 1.4, it's incompatible with your 1.3 client.

Is your working copy perhaps shared with another person, or another OS?

I see Mark already answered the "how to get 1.4" question; I'm sure
Ryan S. will be along with pointers on other places you can get it as
