Just wanted to say that I do like esvn very much. It has an easy to use
and quite powerful interface. Nice revision graphs. A quite good differ. I
did not see the bug you're reporting here, but I'll try to reproduce it on
my system (SuSE 10.2). Though, I admit that I had some crashes, but never
lost any file.

In sum I think that this is a promising tool, worth trying. [ Subclipse
might be also great, but it requires the whole eclipse environment and
therefore that java monster is just an overkill for my 7years old PIII,
which is why I stick to emacs, bash and esvn. :( ]

TortoiseSVN is my favourite under Windows, but it is also not 100%
perfect. The caching of overlay icons seems to be a big problem and drives
me nuts quite often, since it does not work reliably. (TortoiseCVS is much
better in that respect.)

Apart from that I think a standalone solution is always better (like
WinCVS under Windows)! This is especially valid for Linux, where you have
so many different file browsers. One can not expect that the community
implements the full functionality of TortoisSVN for all these tools at
the same quality level...

Given that, esvn is not a bad choice after all!

Regards,
Marko

P.S.: I also tested kdesvn a couple of months ago, but for some reason
(don't remember what it was what bugged me at the time) I decided that
esvn is much better and sticked to that.
