Sorry for being late.

Well, *I* can't, but I've sent a special TSVN version with your patch
included to the one who sent the crashreport (this one speaks english).
He tried it on his working copy, and the crash is gone now! Thanks!

One other thing: I'm really sorry but I messed things up a little here.
When I received the crashreport, I asked the guy some questions to
figure out what's going on. I then also asked he should check the
entries file in the .svn folder. He told me that there's no 'url' entry
in there. He couldn't tell however how this could happen.
Then I sent the special version, he tried it and it worked. But now, the
entries file has the url entry present! So the messed up entries file is
gone, sorry for that. I completely forgot to ask he'd send me that file
so you guys may be able to figure out why this happened.

FYI: TSVN calls svn_client_uuid_from_path() for the commit dialog. The
uuid is used to identify the working copy for which the previous log
messages are locally stored (so the user can get such an entered message
back without re-typing it). It's also done before an update, to find out
if all update-targets are from the same repository (and if they are,
they're updated not to HEAD but to the revision number which HEAD points
to - that way all targets are updated to the *same* revision even if a
commit happens in between the different updates.)

So the guy was finally able to do an update on his working copy, but
that fixed his entries file.
So once again, sorry for messing things up, and thanks a lot for fixing
