experimental svn-win32-1.1-dev-9226: memory leak closed

Hi all out there!

Having been a long-time complainer about memory troubles (well,
by and large it got better through the months though meanwhile I
often let things go as they go or not go <g>) I'd like to post a very
positive report today:

I had noticed several times that slightly larger commits with
TortoiseSVN would hunt memory usage up through the roof
(300MB+) and crash even before TSVN showed any output in its
progress dialog while a commit with SVN commandline would use
about 15 MB only and succeed. Not being aware of the different
way TSVN and SVN commandline handle commits I finally posted
this problem to the TSVN list. Steve King then pointed me to the
same or similar commit through the commandline by doing

                    svn ci --target commit.txt.

Guess what? Memory went up through the roof again (SVN 1.0.1-

Second attempt, now with experimental build (thanks, Ben) svn-
win32-1.1-dev-9226.zip and commit succeeded, using a maximum
of 14 MB of memory!

Now I only wonder if it is wise to stay with the experimental build or
if that would/could likely cause other troubles, not least with either
or both Apache 2.0.48 (which I could update of course) and TSVN
1.0.3 built against SVN 1.0.1 and Apache 2.0.48.

Thanks for all the work and all the many, often invisible

Jan Hendrik
