Hopefully it is the same problem. I have no way of knowing.

Wouldn't it be possible to have the code treat "" the same as NULL? I think
when we committed it, we thought that it did. Probably because line 2872 in

        m_configDir = (configDir == NULL ? "" : configDir);

I now see that the issue is that this code is AFTER the svn library call has
been made. I guess we can live with this if the change is reverted, but I
am not sure a JVM crash is the lesser of two evils.
