Description Tomas Winkler 2007-03-15 14:36:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Seg fault on svn propget using svn_load_dirs.pl. when uploading Linux kernel
It only fails on bulk checkins such as using svn_load_dirs.pl 
It used to work before but after it has stopped. I'm not sure if some of the
updates has broken the functionality.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

>rpm -qi subversion                                             
Name        : subversion                   Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 1.4.2                             Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release     : 2.fc6                         Build Date: Thu 09 Nov 2006 04:50:23
Install Date: Mon 20 Nov 2006 04:43:12 AM IST      Build Host:


Linux 2.6.19-1.2911.6.4.fc6 #1 SMP Sat Feb 24 14:39:04 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386

How reproducible:
Always, but not always on the same file.
It only fails on the bulk 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.svn_load_dirs.pl <kernel-sources>
Actual results:
1. segmentation fault in svn propget
Not always on the same file, 

Expected results:
2. Kernel sources loaded into subversion

Additional info:

I was not able to debug it, didn't get the idea how  to using debuginfo packages

I've tried to compile 1.4.3 Subversion but it always fails in switch_test.py
unit testing while compiling.

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2007-04-02 12:39:38 UTC
There are 1.4.3 packages in updates-testing, is this reproducible there?

# yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update subversion
