Re: SVN wc/repo issue...

I didn't think any server-side locks were involved, but didn't know if a commit earlier on may have done something on the server-side.
I did get around it by using the "svn mv" command to do a server-to-server move - kind of like doing it in TSVN's Repository Browser; and that worked just fine.

I'll have to look to see if upgrading the client to 1.7 is feasible - though I don't do this specific task very often; it's just a matter of whether there's enough dependencies in 8.04 to support 1.7 series; I already had to build 1.6 for it (since Debian/Ubuntu only supports 1.5 for 8.04).
