Re: [TSVN] File Locking - Bug?

From: <fe-listas_at_bol.com.br>

I thought TSVN connects directly to the SVN server (I'm not using Apache)
but you told me it does not. So after your mail I downloaded the 1.2.0 SVN
binaries for Windows as you told me, and used the 'svn' tool to try to
lock the file the same way I did on the Linux box where SVN runs, but
this time I got the same problem as in TSVN. So the problem must be in
SVN itself or in the library and not in TSVN.

The filename isn't really important, because this bug is completly
random. Every time I get another file needing special treatment (another
comment while locking). Maybe there is a problem in how SVN stores the
locking information.

Thanks for the attention,

Björn Martins Paz
