Re: Error leak leads to confusing place

Thanks for tracking this issue!

Contrary to popular opinion, I'm not (yet) honeymooning. That is first
week of July. But I *am* a very happy, newly-married man. As of
Saturday, about 11:30am! :-)

Currently in SF, as a short escape from Vegas. Not really catching up,
but I saw that I was cc'd here....

I believe the right answer for 1.6 and trunk is an SVN_ERR() in both
cases (as cmpilato posited). I don't think we should be dropping that
error on the floor.
