Howto make TSVN eat all available memory

Hi Folks,

Here's a recipe

1) Get hold of a Win2K SP4 Box and TortoiseSVN 0.24.0, Build 554, UNICODE
2) check out a working copy
3) inside the WC create a directory "tool"
4) set the "svn:externals" property on the WC to "tools
http://some.repository/location"
5) try to commit the WC property change with TSVN
6) after getting impatient fire up the task manager and watch TortoiseProc
eat all available memory.

It happened to me once yesterday and again today, so I think there must be
something wrong. The problem seems to be in the subversion libraries,
because running svn st inside the WC results in an infinite loop.

D:\Projekte_Delphi\CalimeRA_Luebbe\doc>svn st
X tools
 M .

Performing status on external item at tools
X tools

Performing status on external item at tools
X tools

...Repeat as often as you like...

Performing status on external item at tools
X tools

Performing status on external item at tools
svn: The operation was interrupted
svn: caught SIGINT
--- SNIP ---

svn st -N fortunately behaves correctly.

This happens with 0.35 compiled from the 1.0 stabilization branch yesterday
morning (CET), so I fear it is also in 0.36.

Cheers
-Lübbe
