Hi David

Thanks a lot for the detailed reply. One more thing that is making me feel
lost is: When I use the svn copy command, to make a tag using the working
copy directory as the source, i get this error:

svn: relocation error: /usr/lib/libsvn_subr-1.so.0: undefined symbol:

I have no idea what this is. I have had read in a Oreliiy book that there
are some svn routines, but i have not digged yet.

Can any one help?
