#134 V8.2: Graph. branch diagram and diff error with svn


We expenience two problems with tkcvs version 8.2 (8.1) and svn:
1) Graphical branch diagram issues an error message (please see below). In V8.2 with cvs that works fine, with svn it issues the error message.

2) Pressing the Diff button shows no reaction with svn (local file against the repo, tkdiff does not get started.). this concerns V8.1 and 8.2. Using cvs tkdiff starts with both verison.
Using v8.1 and svn and marking two versions in the graph. branch diagram tkdiff works. Could not test this with 8.2 due to 1)

Here the version we use:

svn server: 1.4.x

svn (client), Version 1.5.5 (SlikSvn:tag/1.5.5@34877) WIN32

Could this be solved by using svn server and client of same version? Or should it work anyway?

    tkcvs 8.2.3 doesn't support some language. then set LANG=C before launching it.
