Sorry, I sometimes fail to word things correctly. (As a native - and monolingual - English speaker, there's little excuse for that.)
I meant that in my research, I saw a post by a developer (somewhere - I no longer have a link) that referred to this thread (and a couple of others, I think) but said words to the effect of "unfortunately, all the threads mention that they're RESOLVED so it's not receiving much attention. If somebody can post again, we can raise the priority."
I'm just trying to bump the priority again, given our circumstances. Specifically, the server is a Windows Server 2003 system that's mostly under the control of a separate department to my own. It was originally set up for SVN by people who are no longer here and I'm learning as I go. There is an installation of Cygwin on the machine, but no gcc (nor any other development systems). The C: drive (where the programs reside) doesn't have a lot of spare space (but I can always drop things on the RAID drive L: where the repositories reside).

So is it just mod_dav*.so that's affected?

I look forward to release day, but I'll try not to pester people too much about it.
> > The so-called "Resolution" listed in the mailing lists here
I agree. Breaking/releasing locks is NOT a resolution. Applying patches (or patched software) is. Is there an easy way to apply a patch on a Windows server with limited drive space for extra tools such as compilers?

You don't mean to say you actually have *lives*?? ;-)

Learning curves are fun, aren't they?

Thanks. I could probably find the patch (or a patch) with a little more Googling. Applying it is a different story. As I said above, I don't have complete control of the server. Changing the OS would take some finagling.

And now I don't even have to Google.

Thanks. It was very helpful and informative.
