SWIG 1.3.28rc1 breaks compatibility with with Subversion 1.3.0. With
SWIG 1.3.25, the Python, Perl, and Ruby bindings all pass tests. With
SWIG 1.3.28, the Python bindings segfault, the Perl bindings throw
exceptions, and the Ruby bindings fail to compile. Perhaps it would be
a good idea to fix this before release?

Instructions to build Subversion 1.3.0 with SWIG 1.3.28:
- Download subversion-1.3.0.tar.gz
- Run make extraclean (to clean out the SWIG 1.3.25 headers shipped
with Subversion)
- Run make (to build Subversion)

To test Python bindings, type: make check-swig-py
To test Perl bindings, type: make check-swig-pl
To test Ruby bindings, type: make check-swig-rb

Cheers,

David

P.S. See http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-11/0578.shtml for a patch
which works around bugs in SWIG 1.3.27, so that it can work with
Subversion. This fix does not help for SWIG 1.3.28, but it will be
released with Subversion 1.3.1.
