 New Revision: 4455
 
 Modified:
    trunk/subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/fetch.c
 Log:
 svn_ra_dav__get_one_prop() has a deep bug in it. For the 0.17 release,
 we'll just tweak around it.

The deep bug is that __get_one_prop() calls the underlying __get_props()
function which sets up both an XML processor and Neon's standard property
handling. It uses the XML processor to grab href contents; meanwhile, it
uses Neon's processing for other properties.

The problem is that the XML-based handling can't figure out that a property
was 404 (Not Found). It grabs the value which is simply the empty string
(the property gets named in the 404 area, and the naming implies the empty
value).

I believe the solution is to figure out why the XML processor is being used
for non-href properties. I can simply turn them off, but that is a bit more
risky than the fix I installed into fetch.c.

[ btw, the symptom of this bug was that a new client could not fetch files
  off an old server ]

Cheers,
-g
