Alan,

Thanks. I was going to submit a bug report as you suggested, and after
taking the time to write it up I thought I'd take a look at the code to
see if I could correct it, and lo and behold, it looks like someone has
already done so:

sahp7635% svn log svn/subversion/libsvn_subr/validate.c
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r30795 | stsp | 2008-04-26 09:28:17 -0600 (Sat, 26 Apr 2008) | 4 lines

* subversion/libsvn_subr/validate.c
   (svn_mime_type_validate): Check for illegal characters is now in
    compliance with RFC 1521.

Thanks again.
