RE: Re: TSVN locking Bug

Is it possible to get further feedback on this? This issue is still impacting users on a daily basis.

Any help on further diagnosing the issue would also be welcome.

Many thanks,

> Appreciate the feedback Stefan but the svn cleanup routine has been attempted multiple times but the lock error still repeated afterwards (i.e. no guarantee that it would stop the lock occurring).
> Some further feedback gained from looking briefly at the TSVN code and observing the merge behavior on a VDI. The locking issue was seen occurring virtually everytime for end-users. Attempted to merge a single file and found that it took 26 seconds for the working copy thread to complete. Once the thread finished, the merge succeeded.

> When a lock happens, the thread is killed before it runs to completion. Since there is seems to be no cleanup in the thread when it is told to stop, a lingering lock on the wc.db-journal remains until the process (TSVN itself) is terminated. The lock may be from SVN code stopping when writing stuff with SQLite.
> Tested using a slightly altered version of TSVN (that was created and compiled) that does not launch the WC thread and was unable to reproduce the lock issue on the VDI when clicking the next button as fast as possible at the root repository level.
