bug #4417 (Problems with externals in deep subdirectories on Windows)

From: Markus Schaber <m.schaber_at_codesys.com>

I need to know whether any fix or workaround for bug #4417 will make it into 1.9.


This issue was discussed at http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2013-08/0344.shtml.

As far as I remember, the problem is that the windows specific conversion of pathes using the '\\?\' prefix is usually done inside APR, and so there is no "nice" way to pass such a long path to SQLite.

Another fix could be to specifically patch the code which opens the sqlite database, or to patch sqlite with an VFS which does said conversion internally itself.

Bert suggested: "A nicer fix would be to finally start storing external information in their parent working copy." (see http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2013-08/0449.shtml). But as far as I can see, this also won't make it into 1.9.

I'm not trying to push, I'm just trying to find out whether there's an ETA for a fix or workaround already.

Best regards
