[rancid] svn: Out of date: , On very first run .

 	Hello All ,  I've done a tad bit of googling on the error(warning) 
mentioned in the Subject and have essentially come up rather empty handed .
 	Particularly where it concerns references for 'rancid AND svn' and that 
error .  Someone mentioned they 'Removed update from rancid-run & 
control_rancid' and they no longer had this error beating them over the head .
 	Tho no patch or mention of what to remove .  I've done a grep for update 
in both of the mentioned files & only control_rancid had any 'update*' entries , 
tho none of them looked like candidates for being removed .

 	The message (cat'd) in below is repeated every time I do a rancid-run & 
I have even totally removed the rancid user directory & started over .

 	Below is the history of what actions I've performed .
 	attached is my rancid.conf
