The key here is that "/Users/darin" is a symbolic link to "/Volumes/ 
Home/darin" — you can probably reproduce this by putting the checkout  
directory inside a symbolic link.

In determineSvnRoot(), $last is ".." and then $svnRoot ends up as "/ 
Users/darin/Safari/OpenSource/WebKit/..", which seems bad. Is rel2abs  
supposed to handle that?

In chdirAndGetDifference(), before is "/Users/darin/Safari/OpenSource/ 
WebKit" and after is "/Volumes/Home/darin/Safari/OpenSource".
