Subversion Exception!
Subversion encountered a serious problem.
Please take the time to report this on the Subversion mailing list

But please first search the mailing list archives for the error message

(Note: I tried searching the mailing list for the above quoted string, and the only hit was from 2015
with no conclusion, just a follow-up asking if 1.9.2 fixed it, and no answer.)


TortoiseSVN 1.13.1, Build 28686 - 64 Bit , 2019/10/31 18:49:38
Subversion 1.13.0, -release
apr 1.7.0
apr-util 1.6.1
serf 1.3.9
OpenSSL 1.1.1d 10 Sep 2019
zlib 1.2.11
SQLite 3.29.0

I got this error today, when in TortoiseSvn.
I was looking in the svn log, and looking at a deleted folder, and opened in repository,
which brought up the Repository Browser.
It showed two files.
I right-clicked the first one, and chose Edit, and it opened the contents in notepad.
After I looked at it, I closed it, and right-clicked the second one, and chose Edit,
and got an empty file and this error above.
Subsequently right-clicking the first file and chosing Edit also gives the above error.

I just executed this procedure again, with the same results:
the first file works the first time, but then after that, both produce the above error.
