svn propget hangs

  I'm trying to ensure this isn't "expected" behavior before I log a bug
in the issue tracker.


I am messing around on an AIX server where I have installed Subversion
1.5.0. A co-worker wanted me to make it possible for us to change the
revprops of a given commit, so I've been working on some hook scripts.
During my testing I found that if you request a svn propget on a svn:log
revision property, it will hang if the svn:log was left empty.


I executed this command:


# svn propget svn:log --revprop -r 14 file:///path/to/sandbox

tag v1_28_1



This worked as this commit had a log. However if I do this, knowing that
revision's commit does not have a log property:

# svn propget svn:log --revprop -r 11 file:///path/to/sandbox


The process hangs... even trying to ^C (ctrl-C) the process doesn't halt
it. Or it could be, because if I go looking for the pid, using "ps -ef"
and it the is no longer executing from just looking at the pid list. But
yet, I don't have a shell prompt.


This isn't supposed to be normal behavior is it? Can anyone tell me why
this is occurring, and/or how to fix it?
