We need to fix the crashes on Windows before the Python bindings will

No, this isn't solved. To fix the crash issues in the Windows
bindings, we need to compile Subversion on Windows with debug symbols,
and use a debugger to find out where the bindings are crashing during

I'd like to commit the patch, but I don't know enough about the

P.S. The install-swig-py target can fail in a VPATH setup, if you are
building from a release build, and make the "install-swig-py" target
before making the "swig-py" target. Max Bowsher is currently working
on a fix. I'm hoping this fix will be included, but it is a minor
