RE: Re: TortoiseBlame error

Yes, I can see the log for the file.

I don't understand how blame can show anything useful for the empty file - it is empty!

I also don't understand why I don't get the second debug dialog you told me about.

I ran a few blames under ProcessMonitor. A successful one was started with the command line:
"C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseBlame.exe" "E:\TEMP\svn1436.tmp.xml" "E:\TEMP\svn1437.tmp" "Giq.xml" /path:"D:/Dev/GIQ/ajax/Bin/Giq.xml" /ignoreeol /ignoreallspaces /revrange:"1-HEAD"

I have not been able to reproduce the problem with ProcessMonitor turned on. Is it possible this is a race condition where another process hasn't closed/unlocked the file before blame is trying to open it? Maybe process monitor slows blame down enough so the file is unlocked before it tries to open it?

I have encountered a problem like this before, where an anti-virus package was holding a file open (to scan it) and another program was unable to gain exclusive access to it. Just to make sure, I tried with my anti-virus (ESET NOD32) disabled, but was still able to reproduce the problem (provided I didn't run ProcessMonitor).
