 It simply says “project not found”.

ONLY if svn:eol-style crlf in conjunction with an svn diff produces
an identical result on linux and win32.  Even then it creates a
binary diff (mixing line ending codes).  This is -not- elegant.
Search for my previous rants on the subject.

Kris, are you using a win32 port of svn?  Or are you trying to
use a non-win32 port such as cygwin?  Those are two different
operating systems.

I love the idea of noting build/lineends.pl in the building on
win32 page!!!  I'm shocked it wasn't there and appologize for
the oversite.
