Did I ignore the problem? Did I say I believe it doesn't exist? I said
that I cannot reproduce it, and since that is the case, it is up to you
to give me enough information. I haven't the slightest idea about what's
going wrong for you, and I can't even begin to guess why cygwin vs. cmd
could be causing problems. It could be something as simple as bash for
some reason picking up the wrong version of cygwin1.dll, but I couldn't
venture to guess.

For starters, you coud've described exactly what you're doing (i.e.,
post a transcript of the shell session) instead of just saying "it will
hang indefinitely".

Nothing, of course.

You can refer them back to this thread.

I hope you realise that what you just wrote is extremely rude. It is not
my responsibility to do anything for you at all. You did not sign a
support contract for Subversion with me, so you're getting every minute
of my time for free. I've already taken time to confirm that Subversion
is calling the Neon library correctly. I referred you to the Neon list
because I'm not a Neon developer, and the people there are much more
likely to know what the problem is.

/me mutters someting about this kind of bad mannes being the reason why
he tends to avoid reading the user@ list.
