Bug in commiting changes to an fsfs repository?
I sometimes get errors while commiting changes to subversion (1.2.1 under
cygwin, repository uses fsfs):
$ svn ci -m "A.txt moved from dir1 to dir2"
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't open file
'/d/Subversion/repos/db/transactions/149-13.txn/node.15.w ♫§ ': No such
file or directory
(The characters after 'node.15.w' are in this case hex '0F 0E 15 0F')
This happens sometimes but not always and I haven't found out when it will
happen and when it will not.
After looking at the subversion sources, it seems to be a problem to pass
a copy_id of NULL to svn_fs_fs__dag_clone_child in make_path_mutable in
When I changed line 816 in libsvn_fs_fs/tree.c. from copy_id = NULL; to
copy_id = "0"; the problem didn't occur any more.
So for me it seems as if there is a bug in subversion. Perhaps you could
investigate this and in case you agree that there is a bug you surely will
find a better fix for this problem as did.
