Subject An error occurred during decompression
Date Thu, 02 Jul 2015 18:27:11 GMT

I am currently unable to commit compressed (.gz) files to one of our
subversion servers.

Every time I try and commit a compressed file, I get the following error:

Transmitting file data .svn: E120104: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E120104: Error running context: An error occurred during decompression

If I rename the same file from e.g. blah.gz to blah.gnoz without
touching the content of the file, the commit succeeds.

So it looks like something is triggering a compression/decompression
based on file name.

This is an Ubuntu 14.04 server with svn being accessed through the http
protocol with apache dav svn. It is the standard ubuntu packaged
subversion (1.8.8)

I have tried to play around with the SVNCompressionLevel setting of the
dav_svn module, but it did not appear to have any affect.

If anyone needs any additional information to help diagnose this issue,
I'd be happy to provide it.

Thanks in advance for any tips you might be able to give me to help
resolve this issue,
