One advantage of FSSF I suppose. ;) I stick with BDB.

Thanks, Daniel, for taking the time. So SVN was smarter in this
than assumed for a long time. I did a quick search in my local
archive of SVN list mail, but could not find my posting from back
then. Maybe it's buried somewhere in the archive of old versions,
scripts and tutorials. Wouldn't be much surprised if it was pre-1.4
