Oh, I see! I should have thought of that, since it *is* a shared repository.
Thanks! Sharing just the devt folder is more fine-grained, but sharing the whole
repository really isn't too much of a problem.

Thanks for pointing that out, it actually makes the distinction between branch
and repository clearer to me, I think.

Thanks for the fix note, although I think I might not be a very good candidate
as a tester at this point, since I'm still finding my way around. But that's
good to know that it's been fixed.

Ah, I just meant that the (long) error wasn't occurring anymore. :)

Again, thanks, especially for the speedy reply -- I just shared the whole shared
repository and my checkout works now. :)
