Sorry, I'll try again, but I'll try by asking a couple of questions
rather than stating what I think the problem might be.

Has anyone built a site using Forrest on Windows and then been the first
to commit it to SVN?

Do we know for sure that the Ant SVN tasks pick up the SVN config info?

Not sure, I'll do that soon.

I converted to UNIX more out of habit than design. But it works for me
and I'm on Windows so I'm happy.

Yes, but they don't do what we are doing with docs generated by Forrest
and then imported into SVN by ant tasks.
