You did not quote the message you are replying to and it's not in my
Subversion mailbox or trash... Are you really replying to a message
that's 5 years old, as the archive indicates, or is the timestamp on
that message wrong?

In any case, the solution to the issue today is to use relative URL
paths in your svn:externals definition, so that it doesn't contain
the hostname. This requires all clients to upgrade to at least
Subversion 1.5.
