RE: Re: Tortoise Crashing when proxy not configured properly - not able to change it either

Stefan,

I deleted the keys and then waited. They did not reappear. I deleted from two places.
I found them in hkcu\software\tigris.org\subversion\servers\global and then in TortoiseSVN\Servers\global.

I also checked the %appdata% and those files had all #'s in there - so nothing should be executing in those files.

I then checked the registry again - nothing created (waited about 5 minutes). I don't believe I have any other clients on the machine either - but one never knows I guess...

I then opened up the network and ever so briefly the old information I had in there flashed on the screen right before it crashed. I then checked the registry - the values were back again.

Also, and I think that this might be a clue... The values only appear when I click on the network tab. If I start up the Tortoise and do some other stuff in there - no issues. The keys are only created in the registry when the network tab is hit. So I think that I can say with some confidence those two are related.

I have also tried clearing the keys from the registry and then tried rebooting. My thought is that maybe the form is holding those keys somewhere in memory. However, when I logged back in and tried again, the keys were again written to the registry. I have tried searching the registry for my entered password, it didn't show up... I also tried the HD - it wasn't there either - not in plain text anyways.

Does any of this help? Is there a way to generate and send you a dump file that maybe has some clues?

Thanks again,

Steve Chadwick

TSVN can't recreate keys with values that are not already in those same registry keys - where would it get the information from?
Are you sure there's not some other svn client running that recreates those keys?
Maybe remove those keys, wait a while (without starting TSVN) and then check the keys again - if they are there again, it's not TSVN that recreates them.

Also, check *all* locations where svn stores its proxy info:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.advanced.confarea.html

The per-user INI files (%APPDATA%\Subversion\config) The per-user Registry values (HKCU\Software\Tigris.org\Subversion\Config)
The system-wide INI files (commonappdata\subversion\config) The system-wide Registry values (HKLM\Software\tigris.org\Subversion\Config)
