Oh I see. The svn commands work on the Mac but you don't get their
output. But other non-svn commands do provide their output on the
Mac. And the svn commands do provide their output on Windows. That's
odd. I can't think why that would be.

I thought it might be the difference between stdout and stderr. ls of
course outputs a directory listing on stdout. But svn help also
outputs the help message on stdout. So I guess that's not it.

Where is this svn program from? Is this the one included by Apple
with Leopard, or installed with MacPorts or Fink, or provided by
Collab.net or Metissian.com, or compiled manually? Are you on Intel
or PowerPC? 32-bit or 64-bit? What version of Mac OS X?
