[Returning the discussion to the devlist where it belongs.]

Thanks for the info. It's been a while since I worked on our WebDAV
autoversioning logic. I *definitely* don't have a new enough version of Web
Folders available. (My personal boxen still run Win2k!) I think you've
given me enough reason to believe there's a real problem to be researched
here, so please feel free to file an issue in our issue tracker regarding
this problem (at http://subversion.tigris.org/issue-tracker.html).

I trust that by "you may receive", you mean "you, the dev-list, may
receive". You might not always get immediate response from the dev-list,
but the beauty of a mailing list is that your information is maintained
indefinitely for future archaeological benefit. Many of us flag incoming
mails for processing later, as there's always the chance that someone else
can spend the time to respond right now even if we really can't.
