Subject Bug in Mac OS X readdir
Date Sun, 09 May 2004 12:11:34 GMT

There is a bug in the Mac OS X readdir implementation that is breaking
subversion in some situations.  I don't have easy access to a box that I
can use to re-create and fix this bug.  But, this is definately something
APR should work-around.

And now that I look a little harder, this exact same problem has been
seen in subversion before.

I think APR may need to have a workaround for OS X in order to handle
this buggy readdir implementation.
