Sorry to post again, but another possibility, especially if you are
using mod_authz_svn, as well, is that the user has credentials cached
that have read access but not write access to the files being checked
For example if you have something like this in your authz ini file:
foo = r
bar = rw
Then if someone checks out trunk as foo and tries to check in they will
open a transaction as foo, but write access to trunk will fail. They
will then get prompted for a user/password. If they they respond by
logging in as bar, the commit will still fail, but then if they retry,
svn will use the cached credentials for bar from the beginning.
The symptom of this problem is a message like the following in the
[Tue Mar 08 13:53:08 2005] [error] [client 111.222.333.444] (2)No such file or directory: Multi-author commits not supported. [501, #0]
hope this helps,
You're so beautiful, it hurts to look at you.
