Subject Can't kill svn
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2012 19:13:47 GMT
Hi everybody,

is there already a bug on this? I can't always get the svn client to
stop using ^C. Mostly this seems to happen with slow network I/O, like,
for reproduction:

  prompt> time svn checkout
  ^C^C^Csvn: OPTIONS of '': could not connect to server (
  real	1m14.898s
  user	0m0.007s
  sys	0m0.006s

I hit ^C shortly after hitting enter, but 1) svn doesn't stop
and 2) doesn't even seem to care about the signal received.

The only way to actually get rid of it is to ^Z and 'kill -9 %',
but this then requires a cleanup occasionally (plus the prayer
that the latter will work).
