RE: svn.collab.net is now running Subversion 0.23.

By the way, I can reproduce this in seconds with my test program now,
*if* I turn on Sophos AV realtime scanning. But I'm not sure it is
really the same problem. It's possible Sophos is exaggerating a Windows
problem, or it could just be causing a different but similar problem, so
I'm trying to remove it from the equation.

If anyone is interested I can provide the (fairly small and ugly) test
program. It tries to mirror what I think is basically happening in

  Create a temp file,
  update the temp file,
  close the temp file,
  turn read-only bit on for the temp file,
  turn off the read-only bit of the *real* file,
  rename the temp file onto the *real* file.

Does this sequence look correct to the svn developers out there?

Of course, it doesn't recreate the problem yet without AV scanning

I haven't tried repro-ing with one stress.pl yet -- I have had three or
four going when it happens...I've been trying (and so far wasting quite
a bit of time) to reproduce it in a test program. I'll start up a
single stress now and let it go.

I haven't been tracking the stress.pl failures really closely, since I
was hoping to get a test program going, but I will start doing that
since I'm losing hope on the test program, at least until I understand
better the sequence of operations.

I'd like to try to help track this down if I can, so I'd really
some info on the circumstances under which it is happening.

1) Does this repro with only one instance of stress.pl (as phillip
2) This is happening on commit only also on updates?
3) Does it only affect entries files?
4) I thought I saw Brane say that the destination didn't exist. Why
it, if it is just updating an entries file?

Can anyone give me some clearer details here?
