+1 @Matt S thanks, the light-bulb came on during an investigation with WanDisco#s help, don't work for them (but use their products) but credit to their support in helping arrive at this conclusion.

+1 Thanks @Matt S I think this is the right place to be looking. Update: With the great help of WanDisco (don't work for them but use their services) we believe it is an issue with key-mappings being different in Windows and Linux. Symbols such as the pound symbol can get interpreted differently. I have moved the accepted answer (sorry) to this new answer but your upvote still remains as you address the general problem area. I have upvoted some answers you gave on other subjects as consolation that I liked. Hope this is OK.

Our password wouldn't work because it contained a pound symbol which can be interpreted differently under a different character set or key mapping in Windows LDAP password changing compared to Linux LPAP SVN authentication due to mismatch in character set used.

The root cause is most likely a character set issue. To explain, our SVN setup uses LDAP authentication meaning that the login/password we use for SVN is the same as what we use for our corporate Windows PC network account login, which popular convenient arrangement only needing one account for both. However, we usually set/update our password via the usual Windows password change (CTRL-ALT-DEL) and we believe that the ISO character set in Windows is different from that used for the SVN CLI in Linux.

comment How do you answer the question, “where do you see yourself in 5 years?”
+1 @Bobby Tables - Very good answer: the points on the reality, the psychology of an organisation, the location of work, the research, the turning the question back on them

+1 @Nicolas78 "Also, it's possible to overdo OOP design" - e.g. making primitive data types Objects like int for example.

comment Use Google Analytics to track visitor/download stats for a Google Code Project?
I'll accept this answer. If I can work out how to track downloads as well I will add that here. I know in theory downloads can be tracked because, for example, I ran a Drupal site with Google Analytics module, I could see which files people were downloading. I think that in that example, .htaccess config file had some intercept hooks that enabled the tracking.
