Subject RE: SilkSVN client crashing
Date Sat, 07 Sep 2013 11:18:24 GMT


Ivan Zhakov and I checked the minidump but the only thing we could find
using the dump is that the application fails when writing an error message.


So ‘some error’ occurred while producing the log, but we don’t know which
and somehow the handling corrupted the error state. We are looking for a way
to get more information.



As part of this investigation we started publishing the debug symbols for
the SlikSvn binaries on 


If you know your way around Visual Studio and/or another debugger you might
be able to help us. It might also help to just copy the right .pdb files
next to the .exe/.dll files as that improves the debug output in the .log

Hi again Bert,


I updated to 1.8.3 and the error is still present.


Some extended info about this:

-          I can’t reproduce the crash by running the command on the regular
windows command-line.

-          It happens quite “reliably” when I run the same command from the
python script.

-          The commands seem to be failing when the resulting log is
extensive(like been in development since 2008 with regular updates).

-          I seem to be able to avoid the error using the –l flag(in this
particular case this is fine as I don’t want anything more than a few of the
last entries anyway)


See attachment of the python script, its output and the crash log and dump.

I hope that helps.

Hi Bert


Sure, I’ll attempt to provoke it with that version.

Get back to you soon with the results.

                Hi Bjarne,


Can you run the

svn  log



With SlikSvn 1.8.3 (which is available on
and if you can reproduce the result send me the log and dump files?

I’m scripting svn via a Python Script and as you can see in the run-log.txt,
svn seems to fail at random occasions(see crash logs). Or at least for
reasons unknown to me.


And as the error message suggest helping out by mailing here, I did.


Svn version is: svn, version 1.8.1-SlikSvn-1.8.1-X64 (SlikSvn/1.8.1) X64,
compiled Aug 26 2013, 16:52:34 on x86_64/x86-microsoft-windows6.1.7601


Os is: Windows 7 Enterprice, 64-bit, Service Pack 1
