Same here in Subversion 1.2.0 on Mac OS X 10.4.1 (installed from
DarwinPorts). I've been assuming it just means that Subversion has
more data to deliver, but the pipe through which Subversion has been
sending the information to another process has been closed before it
was done sending, so I've just been ignoring it. But I suppose it
would be reasonable for Subversion to not show that error. I don't
know any other program that complains about this.
