Let's not do that then, let's do what it asks for.

There is definitely a bug in there are the moment, which is the following:

The OS asks for

(which is a folder)

TSVN then mistakes that for a file (by falling out of the if(isFolder)
clause, chops the end off and
asks SVN for the status of the folder:


Ignoring anything to do with SVN bugs, surely this wasn't what you intended?

Right, I certainly didn't look at that possibility.

What I'm seeing is that *nobody* asks for the status of the parent folder,
but TSVN mistakenly chops down the path and asks SVN for it. I'm quite
prepared to believe that the column provider does something different, and
that I've broken it, but I know what's going on in the tests I'm running here.

I think if we just looked up the item we were asked for that would be a
good start!

That would be good. But I think it's a separate issue to the
mistaking-a-path-for-a-file, which I think is going on too.

No probs. I didn't expect you to use it as-is, it's just an unambiguous
way of talking about code changes.

I recognise that I'm made a serious communication error in combining stuff
to do with what I think is a TSVN bug, and stuff which is a work-around for
a SVN problem all into one patch.
