Re: Svn 1.2.x can't resolve local hosts on Mac OS X

Well, I solved my own problem. It looks like it was mostly my own
fault, although svn could probably be a little cleverer about this

It turns out that windhorse.local maps to both IPv4 and IPv6
addresses. I was running my svnserve using xinetd, but had not used
the IPv6 flag to identify the service as IPv6-aware. So xinetd would
only launch svnserve in response to IPv4 requests, not IPv6. When I
added the IPv6 flag to my xinetd configuration file, the problem went

For some reason, the subversion 1.1.x client was always using the
IPv4 address, but subversion 1.2.x is using the IPv6 address. I
don't know why the behavior changed.

I guess my one suggestion is that the subversion client code should
be enhanced so that if it gets multiple addresses for the same host,
it should try them all before giving up with a "Connection refused"
