[Distutils] setuptools v. subversion 1.6

Hi All,

I see setuptools still doesn't like subversion 1.6 working copies.
Is that likely to change this century? :-(

Worse still, I tried using:


..to downgrade the working copy with:

python ../change-svn_wc_format.py --verbose . 1.4

However, setuptools still whines:

$ bin/buildout setup setup.py sdist
Running setup script 'setup.py'.
running sdist
running egg_info
writing requirements to mypackage.egg-info/requires.txt
writing mypackage.egg-info/PKG-INFO
writing top-level names to mypackage.egg-info/top_level.txt
writing dependency_links to mypackage.egg-info/dependency_links.txt
unrecognized .svn/entries format in

...uselessly: it does't actually tell me where the entries file is that 
it has problems with.

What am I doing wrong? Is this a bug in change-svn-wc-format.py?
How can I work around this?
