+ ========================
+ A. Windows XP
+ ----------
+ There is an error in the Windows XP TCP/IP stack which causes
+ corruption in certain cases. This problem is exposed only
+ through ra_dav.
+ The root of the matter is caused by duplicating file handles
+ between parent and child processes. The httpd Apache group
+ this a lot better:
+ http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/#xpbug
+ This artile at Microsoft talks of the matter:
+ http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q317949
+ And the Subversion group has already encountered this bug:
+ The only known workaround for now is to update to Windows XP SP1.
