option ssl-ignore-unknown-ca ignored?

Hello subclipse-experts,

my question is a bit off-topic as it concerns the behaviour of the
normal svn client, but I hope, some of you are experts in that field,
too, and might be able to help me.

Before being able to use svnant, I need to check out the initial
build-project which I do using the normal svn client:

   svn co --config-dir subversion --non-interactive --username nightly
--password MYPASS
https://ipanema.nightlabs.org/svn/main/trunk/NightlyBuild NightlyBuild

This causes the following error:

  svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/main/trunk/NightlyBuild': Server certificate
verification failed: issuer is not trusted (https://ipanema.nightlabs.org)

No wonder, it's a self-signed certificate. I'd be very glad if I could
suppress this with a simple parameter, but all that I found is the
option "ssl-ignore-unknown-ca = true" for the config-file "servers".
Hence, I create a config-file like this:

  echo "[global]" > subversion/servers
  echo "ssl-ignore-unknown-ca = true" >> subversion/servers

Unfortunately, it has no effect. But I'm sure that the parameter
"--config-dir" is not ignored, because svn creates the subdirectory
"auth" within the correct directory. Hence, my local subversion config
directory looks like this now:


Is the option ssl-ignore-unknown-ca wrong? Or is my servers file incorrect?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best regards, Marco ;-)
