Actually, this patch does two things:
1. Check if the date in the log entry is empty; in that case avoid the call
to svn_time_from_cstring.
It's that function that causes the VM to crash.
2. Instead of returning an uninitalized date object, which in Java results
in something random date,
return NULL .

This makes it acting the same as for the empty author field, which is also
null when returned to Java.

Actually, I don't know how you normally handle parameter validation ( is it
the job of the caller? )
but I would expect the function svn_time_from_cstring to return NULL when
date with value NULL
is passed to it.

If you'll update the DTD's, I'll also update the XSD files I created a few
days ago, and post them again
to this list.

You're welcome on the report, had to patch it anyway otherwise my reporting
application didn't work
on our production repository. I hope this or a better patch makes it in the
next SVN release.
