Re: AW: Checkout via http/webdav hangs

Hi Felix,

thanks for your comments. Unfortunately the entropy is not the culprit. As for
the per dir auth I don't think that this is a problem, since the server is not
loaded and I suppose it would only show when accessing lots of possibly small
files, which is not the case here.

Thanks again,

- Jan.
