Good hint. ... I believe I know where it comes from... no, I am REALLY

It was the bug fix that some tars cannot handle long lists of files, so
we collaüpsed directories, but now that includes also the .svn dirs.

Sorry for that ...

Karl: We have to add some way when collapsing directories to exclude
.svn directories.

For the tug we can assume having GNU tar, so a simple -exclude .svn or
something should do it.

Remove all of them, I mean all directories .svn
