"This client is too old to work with working copy" [SOLVED]

I got an error saying 'This client is too old to work with working copy'
when typing 'svn'.
It did not say what version the working copy was, though.
There was a link to a page which had a link to a python-script, but it
Sorry for not recording the error message.

The problem was easily solved. I did the following:

$ mv working_copy old_working_copy
$ find old_working_copy -name ".svn" | xargs rm -rf
$ svn checkout svn://myserver/path/trunk working_copy
$ cp -Rfp old_working_copy/* working_copy

Simple, and more reliable than any conversion script! :-) I had all my work
back, and 'svn' worked again.

I just post it in the hope that this, admitted: trivial, idea may help
somebody else, e.g. if the python-script fails.

Must get around to upgrade one day...
