No, to tell the truth, I don't know if the problem is really the same.
While I'm waiting for TextDrive folks to respond to my request to let
me compile and test subversion on their box, I have written a quick
test in perl to see if readdir() does really return less entries than
it should. That test didn't have a problem - it returned correct
number of elements. While that doesn't yet mean that FreeBSD has the
same problem as MacOS, it doesn't prove that it doesn't have that
problem either.
