There's nothing unclear about why your ticket was closed. Please read
the top yellow box on our issue reporting page:
http://subversion.apache.org/reporting-issues.html

We don't put issues into the ticket system until we're sure they're
actual bugs. We handle figuring out that they're actual bugs here. If
a developer confirms your issue usually we'd ask you to file an issue,
in this case we'd probably just reopen your issue.

I started to take a look at your issue but didn't get very far with it
because the freebsd-ports tree is rather large and the checkout was
taking a long time. So a much more specific recipe would be greatly
helpful (hopefully one that doesn't require making a large checkout).

So I'd follow the instructions here with respect to providing the
reproduction recipe and environmental details:
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/issues.html#reporting-bugs

I know that page says to send the email to the dev list but you can
reply here since you've already started a thread.
