Hello, Subversion list,
I have reported this problem in the Fink SVN package yesterday. Since version 1.6.11, SVN crashes and corrups my checkouts.
> It seems like SVN is broken in the newest version in Fink. I have recently updated to version 1.6.11-2 from unstable, which Fink compiled itself on my MacBook Pro, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Fink 0.29.12, and dpkg and apt from my experimental.
Nobody could reproduce. However, Daniel, the SVN maintainer in Fink, recommended me to ran the test suite, which resulted in the following:
Summary of test results:
Running all tests in diff-diff3-test [7/71]...FAILURE
Next to that, tests 30 to 69 all fail. I see *a lot* of errors like this in the tests.log, which indicate why some of the tests probably fail but may not directly indicate why SVN crashes:
svn_tests: Can't remove 'test-repo-commit-date/transactions/0-0.txn/4c^D'
Also for other "weird characters" other than ^D:
svn_tests: Can't remove 'test-repo-split-fs1/db/4^S^C'
Shall I report these tests failing as a bug now, or can you first help me further by e-mail?
