Fixed. The problem occurred because render-lfs-book.sh expected its 
branch_alias argument to be a symlink, not a directory. I've changed it to 
remove its destination unconditionally.

BTW, you might want to change the version entity format on the testing branch 
to another one different from HEAD (SVN-YYYYMMDD), eg. "6.0-YYYYMMDD". 
Otherwise, "name clashes" might happen on the {view,downloads} dirs as 
render-lfs-book.sh use the value of this entity to create the destination 
directories. It's also convenient for the reader, otherwise he/she will not 
distinguish between an "unstable" book and a "testing" book.

Thanks for the report,
