Thanks very much, after a reboot I get again correct time stamps.

I use a fsfs repository. Are there any objections to fix the wrong
time stamps in the repository by changing the db/revprops files in a
text editor? (I tried already on a toy repository, and it works. But
I just want to be careful.)

Is the rollover a bug in Subversion (use of a 32-bit time field) which
will be fixed, or is it just a problem on Windows servers that requires
a regularly reboot at least after 49 days?
