Re: Update to vss2svn.pl

It prints out the following warning occasionally.

Use of uninitialized value in print at vss2svn.pl line 175.

It has also slowed down to the point where it seems to have hung, but it's
only because the _vss2svn\tmpfile folder has so many files in it that
anything trying to access that directory is slowed to an absolute crawl.
I'm in the middle of a "dir _vss2svn\tmpfile" and it has been scrolling
filenames for a few minutes now with no end in sight. Luckily it's on a
different machine so it's not slowing down my primary development machine.

Ok, after several minutes of files racing up the screen, the directory
listing ended with 187,042 files. It hadn't even got halfway through the
SourceSafe database yet. I killed the script because it wasn't going
anywhere fast.

I didn't even know NTFS could handle that many files in the one directory.
