Correct, only the developers are using SmartSVN, while the
servers are using the core command-line client to do a
checkout and update from the repository. I should note that
the web servers are using SVN client(v 1.2.3) that was
installed from the Suse 10 package rather than from
Subversion distribution.

We are not using the ra_dav (HTTP or HTTPS protocols) to
perform an 'update'. We have always (sorry for the
confusion) used the SVN protocal for both 'checkout' and
'update'.

The 'Malformed XML' error is effecting all our web
directories, not just one. We have, several times, deleted
the content in all directories (including the '.svn'
directory) and did a check out again. This might fix the
problem (We have gotten the same error on checkout before),
but eventually the 'Malformed XML' will re-appear when
performing an 'update'.


Thanks in advance,
Jenson
