Hi guys,

I've been looking at this, but in the end am back to square one. Anyway,
I've established that r34158 entirely changes the code path for this
scenario (issue #3354), and that's ok. :P

So we probably just look for some indicator to prevent that offending loggy
entry Julian pointed out, for this particular case. That's how far I got
today. Will probably go on tomorrow.

I doubt that it helps, but below is what I traced around in.


The error happens since r34158,
which changes subversion/libsvn_wc/update_editor.c.

The update calls merge_file() in update_editor.c.

When I compare the traces of r34158 with r34157, they separate at this

(line numbers in current trunk)
  if (fb->copied_working_text)
    is_locally_modified = TRUE;
  else if (! fb->existed)
    SVN_ERR(svn_wc__text_modified_internal_p(&is_locally_modified, fb->path,
                                             FALSE, adm_access, FALSE, pool));

r34158 takes the first case: is_locally_modified = TRUE.
r34157 takes the second case and determines is_locally_modified = FALSE.

This is because of fb->copied_working_text differing between the traces.
On r34158 it is "3354/trunk2/.svn/tmp/tempfile.2.tmp" and
on r34157 it is 0x0.

It has this doc
  /* If this file was added with history, and the copyfrom had local
     mods, this is the path to a copy of the user's version with local
     mods (in the temporary area). */
  const char *copied_working_text;
and it sounds like it makes sense. It even sounds like it is addressing the
copyfrom side, like trunk successfully relates the locally modified file
alpha with the incoming alpha.moved.

In effect,
r34158 goes into the /* working file or obstruction is locally modified...
*/ if clause and goes into a merge situation. Wow.
r34157 goes into the (! is_locally_modified && ! is_replaced) clause and
apparently does something by far simpler.

So, let's find where this fb->copied_working_text is coming from all of a
sudden. It does not appear in the diff -c34158.

It comes from update_editor.c:3000, add_file_with_history():
     if (text_changed)
          /* Make a unique file name for the copied_working_text. */
          SVN_ERR(svn_wc_create_tmp_file2(NULL, &tfb->copied_working_text,

          SVN_ERR(svn_io_copy_file(src_path, tfb->copied_working_text, TRUE,
, where src_path is actually pointing at "alpha" while handling

I'm starting to think all this is intended. So I guess we rather mend the
situation instead of bothering with the cause.

Duh. Back to square one.
