Possible Working Copy/Repo Corruption Bug

From: <Michael_Abraham_at_Monitor.com>
Date: Thu, 10 Jul 2008 16:29:30 -0400


I'm running Subversion Sever 1.5.0 on Windows Server 2003 and TortoiseSVN
1.5.0, Build 13316 - 32 Bit , 2008/06/21 07:55:29.

Here is a recipe for reproducing my issue:

Create an new empty repository
In the TSVN Repo Browser, create a folder, A using Add Folder ...
In the TSVN Repo Browser, copy folder A to folder B using Copy To ...
Checkout folder A to local directory MergeBugA
Checkout folder B to local directory MergeBugB
In Windows Explorer, create folder Sub in MergeBugA and copy some files to
Commit the changes to MergeBugA
Using the TSVN Merge wizard, merge repo folder A to MergeBugB, using all
default wizard choices. Note that clicking Test Merge in the wizard gives
the following error message

Command: Merging revisions UNSPECIFIED of
http://CAM-SOURCE01.monitor.com/svn/MergeBug/A into C:\WC\MergeBugB,
respecting ancestry, Test Only
Error: Not all required revisions are specified

Finish the Merge and commit MergeBugB
Make a change to one of the files in MergeBugB/Sub
Commit the changes to MergeBugB. Get the following error

Command: Commit
Modified: WC\MergeBugB\Sub\Activity.hbm.xml
Sending content: WC\MergeBugB\Sub\Activity.hbm.xml
Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: A MERGE response for '/svn/MergeBug/A/Sub/Activity.hbm.xml' is not
a child of
Error: the destination ('/svn/MergeBug/B/Sub')

Check the logs and discover
(a) The repo was updated even though the error says that the commit failed
(b) The file in repo folder A was changed, not the file in repo folder B

I believe that the problem is due to corruption of MergeBugB following the
commit of the merge.
