Re: svnlook author does not work on Subversion 1.5.3, RPMforge installed on RHEL 5, breaks svnperms.conf with svn+ssh

Sorry about the multiple earlier posts: it was fun with gmail
interfaces, which I only rarely use!

I've set up new repositories on RHEL 5 with subversion 1.5.3 from the
RPMforge repositories. I'm using svn+ssh authentication to avoid the
storage of user passwords in local user directories. And I'm using the
classic authorized_keys format:

    command="/usr/bin/svnserve -t --tunnel-user=user" [SSH public key]

This works well to provide basic read access. But the pre-commit and
svnperms.conf that I'm using fail to detect the author. I've edited
pre-commit to report as follows, and they're not showing the svnlook
author being reported. This also breaks the ability of svn+ssh, and
svnperms.conf, to correctly assign owners of submitted changes. I assume
this is an svnlook bug: it used to work well in Subversion 1.4.x. And
I'd hate to have to migrate *back* to that, really!

I'm happy to test subversion-1.5.4 ASAP, but want to make sure this is
still a bug.
