Re: Subversion problems with "svn switch", "svn co", "svn switch", because of 'wrong' permissions in .svn/ directories

Indeed, it seems so.

This topic came up before (see the thread started at, and the way
Subversion works has not been changed yet. In, it is described as

  Look at the function svn_subst_eol_style_from_value() in the file
  subversion/libsvn_subr/subst.c. That function determines what the
  various svn:eol-style settings mean and you will see that "native"
  leads to APR_EOL_STR, i.e. Subversion gets the value from APR.

There is even a work-around available to change this behaviour:

  You could change svn_subst_eol_style_from_value() and rebuild
  Subversion, or you could change APR_EOL_STR and rebuild all of APR,
  APR-UTIL and Subversion, it depends what behaviour you want. 

Anyway, I already asked for the Antivirus-Workaround upstream, I will
propose some change here, too.

Unfortunately, as Subversion is currently at 1.5 RC4, I doubt they will
include such changes for 1.5. Anyway, I will try.
