[TSVN] Bug: Toirtoise not handling chained SSL certificates correctly

Hi,

I have a svn repository on an https webserver, say
https://svn.foo.com/svn

I have purchased a signed SSL key for my server from freessl and
installed everything correctly. Now my web browser are not complaining
anymore about the validity of my https server.
The official svn client is not complaining either.

The problem is: Tortoise svn is complaining that my certificate
authority cannot be trusted. My SSL key is signed by free SSL which in
turn is signed by geotrust.

The problem seems to be that tortoise is unable to handle chained ssl
and my understanding is that openssl has not be compiled with the
correct option to handle it.

I have tried to compile the official svn client myself with ssl support
and got the same problem as tortoisesvn: my chained key was not
trusted.

Did anyone got the same problem as me ?

I am aware of the "servers" configuration file to artificially remove
the warning. I don't want to use it, mostly I don't want to tell all
the people using the server to configure that file, and it's the whole
point on having a signed (not self signed) certificate.

Regards,

Stephane ODUL
