Re: Bug: Can't set position pointer in file

Thanks for your help.

I have run ldd as suggested, and it did show different versions of the
apr libraries for svn, httpd and mod_dav_svn.

I have removed all versions of apr from my system other than the apache
version, and rerun the configure, make and build, pointing to the apache
apr libs where necessary.

All is now working as expected.

Thanks once again, and apologies for raising as a bug, I thought I had
tried all possible configurations.

Regards

Jamie
