Normally, 1.7 working copies only have .svn directories in the top level of the working copy. (Externals and nested WCs are different cases.) This should be enough for a first-glance 1.7.X vs. 1.0.X-1.6.X disambiguation.

As both the 1.6.X and 1.7.X clients can connect to both 1.6.X and 1.7.X servers, and the server repository format did not change between 1.6.X and 1.7.X, so I'm not sure which problem you want to describe me with that sentence.
Daniel Scahaf answered my question on an earlier reply saying "look for **/.svn/wc.db." Now I see that 1.7.1 working copies only have one .svn folder and the sqlite database file wc.db is in that folder.
After I realized this, I discovered that we were sourcing in a path to an older version of svn in our unix shell script 'wrappers'. I changed the environment variable assignment to version 1.7.1 and now I get the newer version of the working copy. Thanks. Joe
