I installed the nightly build to fix the bug on Windows Vista where
the Export function does not work on the 1.4.5 release.

Our SVN moved to a new host, and the nightly build hung when trying
to do a clean checkout from the new host. I had to re-install 1.4.5
in order to get the dialog to accept the "Do you trust this host?"
message. The problem is still there on the latest nightly build so
presumably this is a regression.
You also need to clear the log cache if you moved the repository but
made it keep its UUID (i.e., if you did not do a dump/load cycle when
moving the repository).


I am a remote user - I assume the people who maintain the repository (on
a Linux system) did all that stuff (since it worked for everyone else -
Linux users and one Windows XP user running Tortoise SVN 1.4.5). One
Linux user mentioned the need to empty out the known_hosts file.

Anyhow, I hope this report is useful - since 1.4.5 does what it needs to
do and the nightly build doesn't :)
The log cache is *not* on the server: that's a new feature in the
nightly builds. You must clear that cache yourself.
It sounds like this problem occurs during checkout and is related to
authentication, not log caching.

But the log cache also caches the repo root url and the head revision,
which are both asked for before we actually do the checkout. That means,
if the log cache gets confused due to relocated repos, the checkout
doesn't get over the initial errors and stops.


I don't think the problem can be related to the log cache, since I uninstalled my earlier nightly build and installed the latest one as a first attempt, and I assume that would have removed the cache (or else the uninstall missed something). In any case, I believe any software should tell the user there is a problem (and ideally how to fix it), rather than hang leaving the user wondering what has happened. :)
