Re: Switched flag bug?

Also, this is a question about SVNKit, which is a separate project
from Subversion -- it's a 100% java "clone" of Subversion, and has its
own mailing list and support channels. (See
http://svnkit.com/support.html) This list can only diagnose problems
with the original Subversion C libraries.
