*Malformed XML output from svn status command*

Hi all,

Following the instruction on http://subversion.tigris.org/bugs.html, I'm
pretty sure I've found a bug. Hope you agree and please advise if I'm
expected to take additional actions.

*Svn version*
1.4.5 (r25188) compiled Sep 19 2007, 23:10:31
Cygwin running on Windows XP

Malformed XML output when requesting status on a specific file.
Suggested priority: P2

I'm synchronizing a repository and a working copy. Periodically I'm
collecting file information in the working copy looking for changes that
automatically get synchronized with the repository. Since I'm using a file
name filter to select which files goes into the repository, I'm only
interested in status information on files that meet my filter criteria (i.e.
I want to avoid a general "svn status --xml -u").
Check out any repository (can be empty) and add (not 'svn add') a new
directory *directory1 *containing a new file *file1.c*. Now request status
on the file.

/- root_wc_directory
/- directory1
/- file1.c

svn status --xml -u directory1/file1.c

<?xml version="1.0"?>
svn: warning: 'folder1/file1.c' is not a working copy

*Bug 1:*
The response doesn't contain a </target> termination tag

*Bug 2:*
Svn warning message appears within the xml message

Kindest Regards,
Joakim Birgerson
