So I've tried it on a different svn repo, same result. A git test repo worked fine (except that the output in the result pane looks a bit weird).
I checked all *.plist files under /Library, ~/Library, /Applications, /System wit plutil -s and couldn't find any semicolon error.
Checking system logs reveals that just about every program I start reports a  CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): Old-style plist parser: missing semicolon in dictionary.
All I could find on Apple's support forums was to ignore it, it seems to be common. So I guess the script checking CommitWindow's output should be a bit more lenient?
