Bug: Viewing PowerPoint Files Changes SVN Status to Modified

From: Adam Rabidoux <arabidoux_at_juniper.net>

I am using TortoiseSVN 1.5.3, Build 13783 - 32 Bit. I have a number of
PowerPoint files stored in my repository. When I open a PowerPoint file
and close it without making changes or saving the file, the next time I
right click on the file and select SVN Update, the file that I opened
and did not make any changes to now has the SVN Status of modified and
the modified icon overlay appears. This was not what occurred in the
1.4.x release that I was using previously. Instead, in the 1.4.x release
nothing would change on the PowerPoint file when a file was opened and
then not saved upon right clicking and performing an SVN update. In the
TortoiseSVN 1.5.3 release, this issue is causing conflicts when
individuals SVN Update a directory in which they viewed but did not save
changes to PowerPoint files, when they SVN Update the directory and pull
in other users changes.


To summarize: When I open a PPT file, close it without making or saving
any changes, and then right click and choose SVN update, the SVN status
indicates that it has been modified. This same issue occurs on
PowerPoint .pps files, but not with PowerPoint .pot files.


This is an amazing tool.


Thank you,
