This is a DNS problem that I just fixed (I think), please try again.

Check and see if this happens when you're *not* getting the 'Unknown 
hostname' bit.  If so, then I'd guess there's a problem with how SVN is 
setting the permissions.  I'd need more info about this to debug.  (I use 
cygwin subversion and don't have any problems with this on Win2K.)

The names that are checked are the ones in the egg's 
'EGG-INFO/top_level.txt'.  The conflict checker doesn't do any case 
mangling.  So I'm not sure what's going on here.  Are you sure you have a 
conflicting package or module present?  If so, where?

Because when building from source, the version number is controlled by the 
source setup.py.
