By switching a development version of SharpSvn to trunk I identified the
following problems since this tag:
r1131052 - svn_repos_recover3 segfaults with a NULL callback.
r1131284 - svn_client_diff4 and svn_client_diff_peg4 pass invalid arguments
to their diff5 variants, thereby ignoring the ignore_content_type flag.

These problems don't impact our svn client, but are pretty serious for old
api users.
(I suggest not holding the release for them, but they belong in the release

I have a few more problems I'm investigating, but none of them look very
serious at this time.

r1131086 is also a direct result of this investigation: 'svn info
svn://localhost' used to provide 'Path: localhost' and now provides 'Path:
This difference is caused by switching from svn_path_basename to the more
correct svn_uri_basename.
