I wish I knew how to do it. This is what all this thread about: give svn
crashes on windows - how to get enough
information to report the crash or what troubleshooting to execute to
understand the problem.
Currently the only relevant answer I got is to run it via batch file and see
whether it helps but even if it helps it does not
eliminate the problem but just hides it. In the meanwhile, I downgraded the
client machine back to svn 1.3.2 and it works fine.
I will post a result of svn batch as soon as I have a time to reproduce it.

Still any suggestion is strongly appreciated even it is not urgent problem
for me anymore,
I believe it is better to resolve it before it becomes catastrophic for
somebody else.

For svn windows dev: IMHO under any condition the pop up error dialog is not
acceptable - it freezes the entire process
without report an error back to the caller application that is the worse
behavior one can imagine for any automation system
There are some techniques to prevent windows application to raise such a
dialogs, I would consider to use it for svn application.

For svn dev: in fact the only "suspicious" aspect of running svn via ant
task that I can think about is
memory limitation that ant may put on forked process... Do you have any
validation on svn binaries under limited memory scope?
May be I could try to run it on my env to see whether it is reproduced.
