Whoa, hold on... is this an actual recipe for a bug in Subversion?

Historically, we've only ever seen checksum errors due to external
forces: bad disk/network/memory, or because some 3rd party program
has corrupted the .svn/text-base/ files.

If you're saying that you have found a way to make Subversion produce
checksum errors *internally*?

I don't understand your reproduction description above. Can you give
us a transcript of the exact commands that cause the problem?
