I also hang on svnadmin test 4 (empty_date) with 1.4.4. The same test
passes on trunk however.

Dave's patch works to fix 1.4.4, but since test 4 is identical on 1.4.x
and trunk, so something else is going on...

...and that something is this (maybe):

On 1.4.4 the first four tests don't create
mp" but on trunk they do! On 1.4.4 and trunk the tests always use the


But since local_tmp doesn't exist on 1.4.4 until test 5 is run, no
authentication data for jrandom is cached until then, so when we get to
test 4's propget...

CMD: svn.exe "propget" "--revprop" "-r1" "svn:date"
"svn-test-work\working_copies\svnadmin_tests-4" "--config-dir"

...without --username and --password specified, we are out of luck and
the test hangs waiting for us to enter a username.

But on trunk this propget works with the cached info in

So something has changed in the test suite architecture, but I can't
figure out what.

lgo - I'm cc:ing you in the hope you might know what changed with the
test suite to cause this, if anyone knows off the top of their head it's
probably you.

I'm sorta tempted to just apply Dave's little patch to the 1.4.4 RC and
proceed with testing/signing, but that seems dubious.

And both those tests call sbox.build()
