Oh my, and when the same was reported to me I though subversion had an 
important bug on my system since the patch clearly removed the "-p 
${pidfile}", but a grep clearly showed it was still there on my disk and 
subversion reported it was the latest revision.

Overlooking the fact that it was on a different line, and a slightly 
different commandline. Damned :-)

At least I can restore my trust in subversion a little bit now... Sigh.
