I was more thinking of local hook scripts which TSVN 1.5 introduced.

Hmm - if the log message doesn't get saved, then the crash happens
*very* early, even before the dialog is properly closed. And that's
before any local hooks are executed or the progress dialog is started to
execute the commit.

Or worse, you said it happened while typing a word.


I can reproduce the crash now, type the following text in the commit
dialog (without the quotes):

"Refs Adresses :issue: #8888"
then set the cursor after the 's' of 'Refs', hit backspace twice to
remove the 's' and the 'f' from 'Refs' --> crash.

The crash happens inside the regex_iterator constructor for that log
message string together with your bugtraq regex string, i.e., inside the
c-runtime library.

That means either your regex string is invalid, or the c-runtime has a
bug. Either way, there's nothing I can do about that, sorry.

However, I think the problem is that part of your regex string:
See that you have twice '[Rr]e' in your string?

If I change your regex to:

it won't crash anymore.
