Re: stranded svnserve processes?

Good call. Sample backtrace below; of the 6 I checked all had identical
backtrace, although the repository paths in frame 2 varied somewhat (that
is, they weren't identical, but they were all in the same area; this could
reflect something about the repo or it could correlate with one particular
user (or set of users) tools).

I didn't see this in the Issue Tracker on tigris. Should this thread move
to the dev list?
