I have another status bug. I don't know if this is related to
Andreas' bug or not.

For the last week, my working copy has contained one switched
subdirectory; my mod_dav_svn subdir has been switched to the
autoversioning branch.

For the last three days now, every morning I run 'svn st -u', followed
immediately by 'svn up', and I always get *different* results! Here
are my transcripts:


$ svn st -u
M 4192 notes/autoversioning-strategy.txt
    S 4193 subversion/mod_dav_svn
M 4193 subversion/mod_dav_svn/deadprops.c
Head revision: 4194

$ svn up
U subversion/include/svn_props.h
Updated to revision 4194.


$ svn st -u
M 4195 doc/book/outline.txt
M 4195 notes/autoversioning-strategy.txt
    S 4195 subversion/mod_dav_svn
Head revision: 4196

$ svn up
U doc/book/book/ch06.xml
Updated to revision 4196.


$ svn st -u
M 4196 doc/book/outline.txt
M 4196 notes/autoversioning-strategy.txt
       * notes/webdav-proxy
    S 4196 subversion/mod_dav_svn
Head revision: 4204

$ svn up
A notes/webdav-proxy
U subversion/svnadmin/main.c
U subversion/svnlook/main.c
U packages/rpm/redhat-7.x/subversion.spec
U packages/rpm/redhat-8.x/subversion.spec
Updated to revision 4204.


Needless to say, I find this more than a little bit disturbing. :-(

Can anyone else reproduce this? I wonder if it has something to do
with having a switched subdir. My guess is that to reproduce, you
simply need to 1. backdate your working copy a few revisions, so it's
out of date ('svn up -r'), and 2. switch a subdir to a branch.

This looks like a big, big bug to me.
