You are right about the conflicting clients. I use 1.3 on one of my boxes
(let's call it A), but I have mounted the same filesystem via sshfs on my
laptop (lets' call it B), which has 1.4 installed. I have not worked on
these files for quite a while. So long actually, that I do not remember
everything I did before. This was also before I started using sshfs.

Now I just wanted to do "svn up" and "svn ci". I ended up just checking
out a fresh copy into a new directory, copying the few changed files here,
and then check in. I did all of this on A. That worked nicely.

There seems to be some problems with using svn on top of sshfs on B
however. When trying to checkout a fresh copy into a new directory
I get the following error:

$ svn co svn+ssh://myhost.org/svn/myproject/trunk testdirectory
svn: Can't move 'testdirectory/.svn/tmp/entries' to
'testdirectory/.svn/entries': Operation not permitted

This only happens when I am inside the sshfs-mounted part of my
filesystem, when inside a part of the filesystem that resides on the local
disk, everything works as it should.
