Hi again,

Again a quick intro: I'm a Debian developer who is helping out with the
subversion packages. I'm not the maintainer, bug doing some bug triage. This
bug was reported recently, and I thought I'd forward it here for your
thoughts:

Perhaps this is just misinterpreting intended behavior, but I thought I'd
forward this here to get your wise opinions. =)
