RE: Cygwin's SVN Client Checkout Bug

This is *NOT* a Cygwin svn only problem.


I still see the problem with the Windows client. I am using version 1.3.0,
I just looked and see that there is a newer version.


I did not see the problem for a long time but then it started happening
quite frequently (on one of my machines.) I have found that the following
contribute to the problem:

1. Anti virus software. I use NAV and at one point I could not use
subversion without disabling the real-time scan.

2. Sharing. I had shared my wc and forgot about it. I found that when I
killed the share I did not have to disable NAV real-time scanning to use


There are some things that I thin *may* having something to do with the

1. Windows indexing service. As part of my trouble shooting I have disabled
this for my working copy directories. This may have help.

2. Multi-threading. My laptop and my desktop are configured pretty close the
same. The big difference between the 2 is that my desktop has
hyper-threading. Whether it is the speed difference, the multiple thread
executing at the same time or something completely unrelated I cannot say.


It seems to me that any type of application/service/shell extension can
exacerbate the problem

I think what he's saying is he's running an Ant task that requires both svn
and rsync, and rsync is installed on Windows as part of Cygwin. In case
you're not familiar with Cygwin it is its own shell, not the standard
Windows command line. Cygwin programs cannot be run from the Windows command
line. Unless there's another easy way to install and use rsync on Windows
Jamie is SOL. Although that bug should be an easy fix, until then Cygwin's
svn client is essentially unusable so this is a valid complaint. Are there
any work arounds?
