Your operating system
The release and/or revision of Subversion
The compiler and configuration options you built Subversion with
Any private modifications you made to your Subversion
The version of Berkeley DB you're running Subversion with, if any
Anything else that could possibly be relevant. Err on the side of too much information, rather than too little.
This only happens on Windows 2019 core (i.e. no UI) my guess would be that it is linked to an API that is not available in core. SVN versions 1.13 and earlier work ok.
