I just applied the Mac OSX 10.4.6 update, hoping that it would solve my problems viz a viz committing changes to an SMB-based subversion repository. Alas, I still have the same trouble with svn commit. In addition, the new update undid scplugin’s changes to Finder which indicate a file’s svn status (e.g. current, newer working copy, etc). I guess that’s not such a big deal, since the svn status is useless without the ability to commit my changes. 🙁

Oh well, I guess it’s time to try the (old) patch for SMB access, which means building Subversion from source. Darwin ports collection, here I come!
