Or at least, don't do it ignorantly. Subversion's trunk code will not work
against any 1.6-era working copies without performing an irreversible
transformation on them (which, in my experience, doesn't even work all the
time, resulting in a completely broken working copy). The performance of
trunk's code is atrocious, too. And then there are the standard list of
warnings about running bleeding edge code.

If you're cool with all of that, and wish to help us verify this bugfix,
that's great -- carry on. Otherwise, I'd suggest that you:

1. build Subversion 1.6.x yourself (by checking out the ^/branches/1.6.x branch)
2. verify your problem with the client that results from your build
3. merge the changes Senthil mentions above (`svn merge ^/trunk
-c38222,38223,38261') into your branch working copy; rebuild.
4. verify that your problem goes away with the client that results from your
second build.
