[PATCH] Troubleshooting section for release template

Hi,

the idea of adding a troubleshooting section to release notes was
discussed shortly on IRC a few days ago between brane and myself (Bert
was following the discussion too) in light of a user who ran into
problems due to (presumably) some proxy issue with http-pipelining support.

To him, it seemed like it was a bug in SVN 1.9, since the same operation
(locking multiple files) worked fine using SVN 1.8.

Ivan pointed out it's most likely a problem with the proxy (maybe it's
not correctly supporting http pipelining).

Looking for a way to record such known issues, we concluded on IRC that
the best way would be to document these things in a new troubleshooting
section on the release notes pages.

Following is a patch against 1.10.html with the suggested section
layout. If that passes, I'm planning to provide another patch for the
1.9 release notes covering problems due to the increased
http-header-section size and issues with proxies (the two known cases
atm which could cause users to run into problems when using 1.9 which
wouldn't be encountered using 1.8).

[[[
Add a new troubleshooting section covering known issues which can be
encountered with the new version but are not directly bugs in Subversion
itself.

* docs/release-notes/1.10.html
   (troubleshooting): Add new section including a placeholder entry.
   (news): Add link to new troubleshooting section.

Regards,
Stefan
