Yes, this is the ones, but additionally, I have some comments to Max'

I think it was because I forgot it under the stress and the noise or
something. I have voted for my own items in the STATUS file before if i
recall it right. Right now, I don't want to even touch the Subversion
repository with latex glows and a "read only capable subversion client"
if such a thing exists.

It's from one or two complaints on the user list. It was the author of
the the extended uninstall program (UninsHs), which adds" add/repair"
capabilities to the installation system that emailed me the fixes
(independent of the postings on the user list).

The problem was that the UninsHs (which is called from the start menu or
the controlpanel's add/remove programs entry) often could not find the
installer's remove program (unins000.exe) when the user's decision was
to remove the Subversion installation.

Agree, +1 on committing it to the trunk. The uninstall capabilities of
the Windows installer is broken without it. This fixes is already
included in svn-1.2.0-rc4-setup.exe (had to do what it takes in order to
deliver a working installer) and everyone seems to be happy about it; I
don't know how many downloads the rc4 got (the stats.tigris.org is not
updated anymore), but it's probably many thousands; in other words:
tried and tested.
