PROPFIND 207 Multi-Status

From: Rudy Desjardins <rudy_at_sandbenders.ca>

I'm trying to run certain subversion commands (merge, diff) and I keep getting a
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '<path-to-certain-file>'
svn: PROPFIND of '<path-to-same-file>': 207 Multi-Status

Now, a bit of background: I had been working in a dev branch of my
repository... I switched a *part* of the working copy to the trunk
(HEAD) version (via svn switch), made a change to the file mentioned
in the errors above, and commited it... I then switched that part of
my working copy back to the dev version I was in, and tried to use an
'svn merge' to pull in the new trunk change to my working copy (dev
branch). It was at this point that the errors started. As I mentioned
above I get the same error with both svn merge AND svn diff, if either
operation operates on the file mentioned in the error (ie: if I do a
diff on a part of the repository that contains that file, it will spit
back the 207 'error').

Not sure if any of that background is relevant...

Lastly, I tested this w/ stunnel 'manually' to see what the server was
giving back... as suspected, the 207 is not an error at all,
subversion just seems to be treating it as such??? (it is a 2xx code,
after all, so should be a success)

Here's a basic transcription of the test...

me_at_mybox:~> stunnel -fcr 443
PROPFIND /path/to/the/file/mentioned/in/the/errors HTTP/1.1
Host: my.subversion.server
Authorization: Basic kljf4kfl43kjfl2k4fj2lk4jf2l4kfj24lkfj
HTTP/1.1 207 Multi-Status
<more http response headers>
<xml multi-status DAV response>
Now, I don't know much at all about svn internals to examine the
actual data in the xml response, but nothing in the exchange looks
like an error to me... again, it looks as though svn is simply
considering this an error instead of properly dealing with the
response... my question is, have I 'corrupted' my repository somehow,
or is this a bug, or is something locked, etc???
I found a thread about DEFLATE screwing up svn/PROPFIND requests, but
turning it off didn't make a difference.
Any help would be awesome, thanks in advance!
