I believe the commit did succeed, because all of the AnkhSVN glyphs were
gone... here is the current "svn info" on the flash drive; the F drive
is on the desktop. I know the flash drive is the latest.. should I do
another commit while it's connected to the desktop?

L:\Inventory Program - Working Copy>svn info
