Your script is not supposed to go into the ".svn" directories within the
sandbox. You have changed the reference copy of "A.txt" in the ".svn"
directory and it is likely that "svn status" isn't noticing that it no
longer matches the repository. See:


So you would use:

find// -name .svn -prune -o -type f -exec sed -i 's/testing/running/g' {} \;
