I rarely had problems with FrameMaker in SVN. When I did it was
because someone neglected to flag a file as binary. I also had
problems with the TortoiseSVN client getting out of sync with the
repository, so I switched to command-line.

Of the eight or so source control systems I've used, the only one I
really had problems with was SourceSafe. It was no surprise to me when
Microsoft discontinued it.
