Um, well. The anon version is a mirror (created with SVN::Mirror) of the
master? Well, than svk can't recognize the master as the patch target. Try to
mirror the anon too and re-push the patch to the actual master.

They stick to only one master, accessed with two different methods
(the repository is recognized by it's UUID, not it's url).

Subversion is not a good base for truly distributed work, no matter how
excelent job svk does. Unfortunately none of the new version control systems
is really mature yet.
