This really should make no difference. The zlib package itself requires
zlib0, so even on cygwin-1.5 you should have been okay.
Good point well argued -- the depends list isn't the problem. I would
have caught the problem earlier if I'd been thorough and built a full
dependency list for subversion and reinstalled each one, not just the
first level dependencies.
Of course now I know about strace/cygcheck I'm much better armed to
diagnose this sort of problem in the future :)
I suspect the real problem is that zlib0 was misinstalled on your
cygwin-1.5 system originally, and once you reinstalled THAT, your svn
Yep, that's the bunny, no question.
(Still an open question if everyone who hits this problem has the same
cause, and whether the setup.exe package update run somehow misinstalled
cygz.dll (or even removed it.) Alternately, it was merely something I did.)
