There we go again :) I mostly use git with GUIs, and only used rebase with SourceTree. Which probably is set up to do a git reset --hard first when rebasing.

Ahh, of course, it'll depend on whether the tree contains a .git or .svn subdirectory, right? Doh (or duh, or whatever you say in those situations ^^)
