Subject Problem with locking multiple files.
Date Fri, 06 May 2016 11:37:40 GMT

this is in reference to a user reported problem on the TSVN mailing list [1]

The user is having an issue with using TSVN 1.9.4 over a Java-SSL-Tunnel 
when trying to lock hundreds or thousands of files. The same operation 
works without problems when:
- using TSVN 1.8.12 or
- using the SVN command line client (1.8 or 1.9)
- disabling the Java-SSL-Tunnel

I've been pointed to issue #4557 [2] by stsp. I'm not 100% certain 
whether this really is the particular problem the user runs into but 
even if it wouldn't be the case here, the underlying issue of #4557 
might be worth changing/fixing in 1.9 as well.

The reasoning from a users / downstream-developer's point of view would 
be that the new way could fail in a particular environment which the old 
(aka: 1.8) way would work just fine. So if I as a developer make use of 
the new functionality, it would look like a regression to my userbase of 
my tool.

Does that make sense to you? Should I create a new JIRA issue for that 
case (in contrast to SVN-4557 that would differ in that the effected 
version would be 1.9.x - not 1.8.x - aka: no regression)?
