trouble with win32 perl bindings and https

I'm not sure whether this is the right list or if there is one
specifically for the perl bindings but the FAQ implies one should post
to this list if not sure...

I'm having trouble with the perl bindings for subversion when using
https schema URLs. This is using the precompiled binaries for win32 and
subversion version 1.1.4 downloaded from here:


A shortened form of what I'm doing:

   $svn = SVN::Client->new(

   my $url = "https://somewhere/something"
   my $list = $svn->ls($url,"HEAD",0);

   sub svn_server_trust_callback {
       my ($cred,$realm,$ifailed,$server_cert_info,$may_save) = @_;

       print "Failed with: $ifailed\n";

       print "Leaving callback\n";

When I run this it dies at the $svn->ls stage (or more accurately,
inside the callback at $cred->accepted_failures):

"Type error in argument 2 of
svn_auth_cred_ssl_server_trust_t_accepted_failures_set. Expected
_p_apr_uint32_t at <path to svn>/perl/SVN/Base.pm line 80."

The print of $ifailed yields 8 (i.e. UNKNOWNCA). If I don't give
accepted_failures an argument the program executes (i.e. doesn't die)
but it does fail to fetch view/fetch the URL, since it now won't trust
my UNKNOWNCA certificate.

Lastly, the command line tool "svn" works fine fetching the same URLs.
For now, I'll just wrap invocations of the command line, but it would be
nice to do it "right" (i.e. through the $svn object).


Unix is designed to help you avoid doing boring, repetitive things
     - if you can remember how.
Windows makes boring, repetitive things pretty and easy to remember
     - but you still end up doing boring repetitive things.
