500 error copying a directory with Subversion 1.1.3/Win32

From: Brent Cook <bcook_at_networklogistic.com>

Dear All,


   I just tried to perform the following operations using a Subversion
1.1.3 server on Win32:


svn cp somedirectory NLI

edit some files in NLI

svn commit


The output was something like this:

bcook@contradiction:/cygdrive/c/projects$ svn status

M include/config.inc

A + templates/NLI

M + templates/NLI/directory.tmpl

M + templates/NLI/index.tmpl


bcook@contradiction:/cygdrive/c/projects$ svn commit

Adding templates/NLI

svn: Commit failed (details follow):

svn: COPY of templates/NLI: 500 Internal Server Error (http://ncc1701)

svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:

svn: '/cygdrive/c/projects/svn-commit.2.tmp'


The Apache 2.0.52 error log says this:

[Wed Feb 16 15:08:40 2005] [error] [client] Could not
MOVE/COPY /svn/projects/!svn/bc/10/internal/websvn/templates/BlueGrey.
[500, #0]

[Wed Feb 16 15:08:40 2005] [error] [client] Unable to make
a filesystem copy. [500, #125001]

[Wed Feb 16 15:08:40 2005] [error] [client] Couldn't
determine absolute path of 'd:/svn/projects' [500, #125001]


Any reason why Subversion could not determine the path? All other
operations work fine. I tried this with the fsfs backend first, and then
dumped and converted the repository to bdb. Same error. Anyone have any
advice? I am also using the Cygwin subversion Client, which is 1.1.2.
Could this be a client issue? I would rather not use the Win32 client
because it always wants to spawn the editor with 'cmd', which screws up
when you commit from a UNC path.
