We do.

I wouldn't know how git-svn uses the APIs. And that is the whole point:
the git-svn authors are likely better equipped to demonstrate a bug in
the Subversion APIs, and describe a way to reproduce it that does not
involve using git-svn. The message "Temp file with moniker 'svn_delta'
already in use" is not emitted by the Subversion libraries and gives no
clue as to where to begin looking for a problem.

That said, a number of bugs in 1.8.0 have been reported on this list,
mostly related to the Serf back-end in one way or another. It's possible
that what you report is a known problem, or a new one; but it's hard to
say from your report.

Can you reproduce the error using just the Subversion command-line
client, in the same enviroment? If you can, and then post the exact
commands used and the output produced, that would give us a much better
chance to diagnose the problem.
