Re: problems with serf

I'll take a look at your stack traces. Thanks!

It is very strange that this happens for you. I've been using serf as
my only connection for the past couple years. I specifically disable
neon support. It's been working just fine for me, so there is
something on your system or about how TortoiseSVN interacts with the
libraries that triggers it.

And no... serf will eventually stop calling abort(). Those are
generally in there to signal programmer error, not a proper runtime
condition. I agree with you in that respect.
