I don't know. I'm having trouble getting it to do it now. It's very random.
It seemed like it happened more with a newer repository and I got it to do
it again when I remade the repository, but I just remade the repository and
now I can't get it to happen at all. The repository I've been making is
structured roughly like so:


more files in same directory

I was able to get it to happen some by committing a change to one file in the
directory. svn status seems to behave somewhat differently from the other
commands in that the other commands seem to recover easier into a state with
I no longer have to authenticate. It also fixes itself after a delay.

I can't really get it to happen enough to test whether the editor thing makes
a difference. I'm not sure why it happened so many times when I first tested

Blech. I hate heisen-bugs.
