RE: Svn crashing windows

This is very likely a driver or memory or hardware issue (conflicting
interrupts or devices that do not like to share an interrupt possibly).

No matter what an application (like Subversion) does, it should not be
able to crash or reboot a WinXP machine, and I have not found an
application that has, except for when it exercised a bad driver or bad
memory area or other hardware type problem that other apps did not
happen to hit. Subversion can be very memory intensive on some
operations...have you tried removing or swapping out memory modules?
That is where I'd start looking for the culprit...

Subversion appears to be very unstable on my system, to the point where
I am
going to have to stop using it. Svn export will reliably crash my
as will svn checkout. This as happened 3 times today, twice on my
repository and once an a freshly created and loaded repository using
nights backup (done using svndmin dump). The restore was required
it would appear the repository was corrupted. Nothing could read it.

OS: WinXP (SP1) plus patches
Hardware: Dual Athlon XP 1900+
Mem: 1.5 Gig

Subversion: 0.21 for Windows
Repository: 5000+ files
Repository Size: 274 MB

Symptoms: During the checkout/export everything appears to be moving
just fine. Then the computer simply reboots.

NOTE: I REALLY like subversion. Just can't afford the time and risk of
loosing data. I will keep monitoring progress and if it appears to
more stable, I will test it again.

I am also willing to help resolve this problem by running debug versions
requested but I do not have the time to do custom builds or try and
the issues on my own.
