SVN Copy versioned item(s) stops after replacing a single file

From: David Pyke <shoelace_822695_at_hotmail.com>

Scenario: copying new versions of files over old versions

In my case. Coping defect fixes to a release/staging directory



1) select multiple files

2) right-click drag to another folder where the same filenames exists
(ie an earlier version)

3) select "SVN Copy versioned item(s) here"

4) a popup message appears


The Target file

<filename> already exists

Do you want to replace the file

[Yes] [No]


5) choose yes.


Expected behaviour: file is overwritten and continues to next file

Observed behaviour: file is overwritten and copy procedure stops. (ie no
other files are copied)



Additional notes:


I realise i could delete the files first.. but i feel thats error prone.


I also found In the change log there was an existing bug.

-BUG: When right-dragging and copying files over already existing

       files, an empty error dialog was shown

       in case of success. (Stefan)


which i can confirm is fixed as it also effected me earlier this year.



Is this a defect in the code or in my method?
