The attached file contains the top and bottom of a Lisp backtrace I got from 
C-g, after enabling enter debugger on quit.  I tried to send the whole thing, 
but the mail server bounced it.  It's pretty clear to me that EDE is going 
into (potentially) infinite recursion.  I'm not sure if it is really related 
to svn, or simply to its trying to visit every Makefile.am in the source 
tree. I try playing around with GDB to see if I can get anything interesting 
that way, but I really believe the problem is clearly revealed by the 
attached backtrace.
