Re: Help! REPORT fail & SSL error... UPDATE

Hi Samay,

Client-side, it's nothing odd. The server is serving repositories via
HTTPS over Apache2 - in fact, that's all Apache2 is doing, so the
setup is very straightforward. Client-side, we're using bith built
and binary installs of SubVersion, on OS X and Windows.
Authentication is via Apache2 - I forget what that method is called
(authz?) - it's the method recommended in the online SVN book though.

And it's always worked! Until now. A few days ago I had a dev install
1.4.0 without my knowledge - and now, problems. Server and clients
were always 1.3.latest-before-1.4.0. Apache/SSL logs give the errors
that are consistent with this SVN error - "cannot write base64 data"
or something (sorry I'm at home now, I'll e-mail the exact messages
tomorrow morning).

Thanks, I appreciate it. Might anyone have a SubVersion developer's e-
mail? This seems like a problem that pops up once in a while with NO
solution anywhere online... =\ but it's been reported a bunch of
times before!
