I didn't know about the svn2revisioninc.pas file, but I did know about
the 'compilation' tax

I added a 'getrevision.sh' in the "Execute Before" Command edit box
and checked Build and Compile.

When I compile, Lazarus IDE crashed and closed without showing any
error message.

I then thought maybe Lazarus IDE can't find my 'getrevision.sh'
script, so I added the following in the Command edit box:

Again the same thing. When I compile Ctrl+F9 Lazarus IDE simply
crashes and closes. :-(
