Failed to Recover after Mac OS X Finder WebDAV access (Failed to revover)

Hello everybody,

I've received some information on the course of actions that caused the
repository to get broken:

The repository is a converted CVS repository. I've checked and the repository only has received a few 'test' commits, nothing big. The user tried to connect to the repository with Mac OS X Finder:

- in Mac OS X Finder: 'Connect to server..' and afterwards the (non-SSL) URL of the repository is set
- After WebDav authentication only the directories of the various branches appeared, but not the trunk!
- a .txt file was successfully opened in one of the branches directory and closed without saving

- when the user tried to create a new textfile, it went wrong! Various directories disappeared without a warning, but also, the trunk directory somehow appeared. Afterwards we weren't able to connect to the repository in any way!

I've got permission to send the repository to you Ben, shall I make it available on (S)FTP / WWW for you to download?

Best regards,

Marijn Verkerk
