Re: svn and svnserve hanging

I got interesting information from the sysadmin of the server:
what the logs show is that a cron job reloads the unscd daemon
every 10 minutes, a multiple of 10.

So, the hanging svnserve was started at about the same time as the
reload of the unscd daemon. This was also the case when I had the
problem in the past. And when I looked at the other "svnserve -t"
processes that were started a long time ago on the machine, except
for 2 users (which seemed to be particular as having many svnserve
processes), the start times were also multiples of 10 minutes.

Thus it seems to be a bug in svnserve (or a library it uses to connect
to this daemon), which doesn't seem to handle failures correctly.
