It is on my ToDo list to have a look at this issue - I already have seen your 
comment on the issue from Wednesday.
Unfortunately, my current time is taken by the task to replace the neon 
HTTP/WebDAV client library by the serf HTTP/WebDAV client library. I am 
excepting that I will be busy with it at least until the end of next week.
Afterwards, I will have a look at issue 118823.

Best regards, Oliver.
