win32 exception on svn lock with https

From: Richard Cockerill <richard_cockerill_at_hotmail.com>
Date: 2006-12-20 05:55:08 CET

I am running svn 1.4.2 (Collabnet build) on Windows XP Professional
with a repository hosted in Apache 2.0.55 (running on the same box
for testing).
An unhandled win32 execption occurs (in the client) when I use svn
lock (see recipe
below) to lock a file from a repository with an https url. The
working copy requires svn cleanup after the failue.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Please note:
     The problem does NOT occur if I use http in place of https.

     The problem does NOT occur with subversion 1.4.2 client on OS X
     connecting to the same repository as above.

     The problem does NOT occur in subversion 1.3 (Collanet build).

     The problem does occur in subversion 1.4.0, 1.4.1, and
     1.4.2 (Collabnet builds).

     The problem does occur in TortoiseSVN 1.4.1, Build 7992 - 32 Bit
     , 2006/11/11 09:34:39.

The recipe to create the problem is as follows (Note that
C:\SubversionTestRepositories is the SVNParentPath of the apache

svnadmin create C:\SubversionTestRepositories\LockTest
mkdir LockTest
svn checkout https://localhost/svn/LockTest LockTest
cd LockTest
echo foobar > foobar.txt
svn add foobar.txt
svn commit -m "adding foobar"
svn lock foobar.txt
