Well, the 1.14 pre-releases built fine for everyone else (probably
including several developers on OS's similar to mine), the bots were
green, and I had just freshly re-installed the apache2 packages, so I
figured it was _probably_ a bug in my environment.

But yeah, it's a probability.

I haven't kept fails.log, unfortunately. I built on Debian stable.
I'd have built with my usual array of flags¹, run «make davautocheck»
with «APACHE_MPM=event THREADS=1 CLEANUP=1», and confirmed that the
failure happened without the patch as well (otherwise I'd have posted
then). From memory, the failure happened approximately once per
davautocheck run (with the «TESTS» Makefile parameter unspecified,
i.e., once per full run), not always at the same place.

davautocheck.sh is just a script that sets up httpd and runs the test
suite with a --url= argument pointing to that httpd.

I don't know how «make davautocheck» compares to «make -f …/unix-build/Makefile.svn

davautocheck.sh has some development-oriented flags, documented in
comments at the top of the script.

"except efficiency"?



¹ «CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/dash /path/to/configure AR_FLAGS=cr RUBY=none
  --disable-nls -q -C --enable-maintainer-mode 'CFLAGS=-DSVN_DEPRECATED=
  on a tmpfs. With these flags, three svnadmin tests are _expected_ to
  fail; those failures are unrelated to the other failures discussed
