No idea. You'll need to provide more information.
As Daniel noted on the dev@ thread you started, there is a regression
test which checks for an issue 3552 regression. I just ran this test
and it passes on trunk and 1.7.x.
So what we need to find out is:
- Did issue 3552 re-appear and is there a problem in the regression test?
- Are you seeing some different kind of problem the test wasn't designed for?
To find out more, we need to know exactly what you are doing to make the
error appear. Can you please try to describe, in detailed steps, how
to get the error to appear when starting with an empty repository,
checking out a working copy of the empty repository, and performing
any Subversion operations on this working copy until the problem
Note that you can use a local repository for this purpose. You don't
need a server. Run this to get an empty repository and working copy:
svnadmin create /path/to/repos
svn co file:///path/to/repos /path/to/working/copy
