I never said it was a server side bug. It is in the Subversion JavaHL
code. It does not properly create the runtime configuration area (where the
cache is stored). Using *any* Subversion client that creates the
configuration area fixes the problem. There is nothing special about
TortoiseSVN. Using the command line, or even SVNKit would also fix it.
Also, if you had just been using the 1.3.x version previously, and already
had the configuration area, would have fixed it.
