Subject Problem to go to older revision that had externals
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2015 12:26:04 GMT

I have a working copy that includes data from an other repository with 
an svn:externals property.  Then I decide to import that data into my 
repository and to remove the external.  The following update that 
switches the data from external to local causes trouble in some working 
copies (Removed external is already locked).  I tried to reproduce this, 
but run into another issue.  To model the update in other working copies 
I switched my working copy to the revision that had the externals (svn 
up -r nnn).  This fails with "W155009: Failed to run the WC DB work 
queue" and "E205011: Failure occurred processing one or more externals 
definitions".  "svn st -u" says I need to run cleanup, but after the 
cleanup I get the same message from the status command.  If I update now 
I get an assertion from 'subversion/libsvn_wc/update_editor.c' line 1550.

What is wrong, how can I recover from that state?

A script to reproduce this is attached.  Tested with svn 1.8.11 on 
GNU/Linux 2.6.18, x86_64.  The "How to report a bug" guideline asks for 
such things like compiler and configuration options and the version of 
Berkeley DB.  Is there a command to get those information?  All I did to 
compile svn was "./configure && make && make install".
