Re: Apache memory leak with TSVN 1.5.x clients

Hello,

I took TSVN 1.5.3 from Sourceforge (neon 0.28.3):
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tortoisesvn/TortoiseSVN-1.5.3.13783-win32-svn-1.5.2.msi?download

SVN CL 1.5.2 from Tigris:
http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/43455/svn-win32-1.5.2.zip

SVN 1.4.4 Server: libneon-gnutls.so.26 (neon 0.26)

Please note that the leak issue doesn't occur with TortoiseSVN 1.4.4 (neon
0.26.3).

Finally, also tested SVN 1.5.1 Server (from Debian Lenny) with libneon27
0.28.2-5.
Same behavior.

Thanks a lot!

Patrick
