I am accessing the repository via svn+ssh. I think the problem is
that I have some version in /usr/bin and another version in
~/usr/local/bin. When I'm logged in, the version used is
~/usr/local/bin and that is 1.6.9. The version in /usr/bin is 1.4.2.
Is it possible that these versions are getting mixed up?
