Hi John, lists,

I already asked users@svn list about a similar issue (see my message
here: http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2006-01/0101.shtml).

And today I have to admit: I'm lost.

* The problem only appears on my production server (the test one with
the same configuration & soft version is rock solid). -> Not easy for
debug.

* Apache restart seems a good therapy for this problem.

* Quick statistics do not highlight a link between the number of
access and the number of errors:
Eg. today:
4135 accesses, 3 errors
yesterday:
11097 accesses, 8 errors
tuesday:
17407 accesses, 2 errors
monday:
12672 accesses, 0 errors (yeah !)

* I restarted the production server: change nothing.

* I read subversion part of the code that create transaction
directories and -correct my if I missed sth- the only thing that can
influence directory creation (to remove execution right in my case)
apache umask.

I ready to run test in order to debug this situation, but since it is
on a production server used by hundred of people, I have to do it
carefuly.

Manuel

Ps: I someone reply, please keep my in CC, I don't read all lists.
