Sorry, my mistake. In hindsight, I really have no idea what went into
producing that fix. As a user who monitors the list, I guess I was basing
it on the relatively short time between 1.1 RC3 and RC4.

To me the issue is that 1.1 is a significant new stage for Subversion due
to FSFS and some of the other nice enhancements. It is a shame to mar the
new release with a performance regression of this magnitude.
