Why is svn trying to start when I log in? How (or even should) I stop it?

I upgraded my Tiger install to Snow-leopard last night.

"I've been having the same issue since installing Snow Leopard, and, thanks to Pierre's suggestion, used Lingon to track the problem down to TextMate's com.macromates.textmate.bundleupdate agent, which calls ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Pristine Copy/Bundles/GetBundle.tmbundle/Support/bin/autoupdate.sh,
which executes svn (in the same directory), which is a ""Mach-O executable ppc"".
Using Lingon, I disabled the agent, and now I don't get the message anymore.

I had used System Profiler to find all the PowerPC applications on my machine (but it failed to find this one):

"Snow Leopard already includes an svn client. I suspect that you have installed svn in the old time when Mac OS X didn't include it, possibly before Intel transition.

I don't know what svn would like to do at startup since it is a client. Did you install a svn server as well ?"
