1.9.0-beta1 may accept invalid certificates (was: svn commit: r1678571 - /subversion/trunk/subversion/libsvn_subr/cmdline.c)

Subversion 1.9.0-beta1 may accept invalid SSL certificates presented by
servers in certain conditions: if both --non-interactive and --trust-foo
were passed, and the certificate has two failures, both the 'foo'
failure and some other failure.

In this context, a 'failure' corresponds to one of the 1.9.x cmdline
client's --trust-* option flags.

This issue is not present in any GA release (1.8.x or earlier) and will
not be present in 1.9.0 final.

(handling this publicly since it doesn't affect any GA release; normally
we handle security issues privately)
