Duh, I believe I had the two mixed up.  I don't know why; overly 
optimistic thinking I guess.

We tried Win2k client machines connecting to a Subversion server set to 
auto-version.  Opening a "web folder" worked ok; but trying to map that 
to a drive letter seemed to result in all sorts of issues, one of which 
I believe was an infinite loop in the login prompt.  Its been over a 
year, so the details have gotten kind of fuzzy.  Anyway, we were trying 
to use non-WebDAV aware programs (e.g. Flash, Wave file editors, etc...) 
and this also seemed to often result in zero-byte files being stored on 
the server.  Maybe a different combination on the server-side would have 
fixed the issue, I can't say.
