Tramp problem with files under version control (subversion)

GNU Emacs 23.3.1 (Aquamacs)
Tramp-Version 2.1.20

accessing files on remote Linux systems works beautifully for me (thanks for 
the excellent tramp package!) - including handling of all version 
control-related issues (subversion). I have a near identical setup on a Solaris 
10 box but here we experience problems under certain conditions: the problems 
are related to the login used with tramp and apparently have to do with version 
control (subversion). If I connect to the machine via tramp and start in a 
directory which does not contain files under version control, everything works 
fine. If, however, I encounter a directory that does, dired will show a listing 
but accessing files through dired will result in "Couldn't find exit status of 
`test -e somefile'", Tab-completion in the mini-buffer works, though. Opening a 
file via minibuffer will work (eventually) but display half a buffer of error 
message ending with "does not return a valid Lisp expression", these error 
messages vanish later. Maybe this is interesting: if I connect via tramp as a 
user who only has read-permissions for the files under version control, Emacs 
will (correctly) tell me "note: file is write protected" - but tramp works 
flawlessly. Both user configuration have a nearly identical .bash_profile which 
contains "export PS1="\h:\W> ", subversion works fine when used on the command 

Re-running the session with
(setq tramp-debug-buffer t)
(setq tramp-verbose 10)

Many thanks for any help with this.
