RE: "Blame" no longer works on large size source file

The Blame does fail with two files every time in my project with default ignoreing whitespaces/eols. What I meant "more frequent" was that it should fail with most (if not all) files if the problem was due to the system running environment.

Thanks,
Huangsheng

I searched the Subversion code for the error message. From what I can see in the code, this would have to happen every time for a specific file. Can you confirm that?

When you blame, try changing the default blame options to *not* ignore eols and whitespaces. In that case, the blame should succeeed.

If you can reproduce the issue with the same file every time (and ignoring whitespaces/eols), you should report this on the Subversion mailing list.
