RE: Random Checksum mismatch on fresh checkout affecting single machine

Thanks for the response Ben.

I noticed the DEFLATE output filter being used in the subversion <Location>. I removed this on the off-chance it was causing issues. This had no effect. Unfortunately, because I am not at the same location as the problem client, it is only affecting a single client machine on this version, and the investigation time is taking resource from main development, the user has rolled their subversion client back to version 1.7

Thanks again

This issue sounds suspiciously like what's described here to me (note the
second warning box):

I'd check to see if your server has been misconfigured to modify the file
contents being sent to the client.

The reason you're seeing a difference in behavior with older clients is likely
because the default of using skelta style updates is now the default. When an
update happens via bulk update mode the file content is included in the report
and the filter that is triggering with a direct request of the content does not
get triggered.

The behavior change here is covered in this bit of the release notes as well:
