Subject Regression: Bad cert handling in subversion 1.6.11
Date Sat, 03 Jul 2010 06:04:43 GMT
Hello all

since I've upgraded to subversion 1.6.11 found that there is a bug while 
accepting bad certs. This is also true for 1.6.12. I'm running gentoo stable 
amd64 and gentoo stable x86.

While checking out a trunk from svn with a bad server cert, svn warns about 
it,but then it does not print the message with the options to except or 
dicard. Instead it sits and waits for user input, AFTER which it will show the 
input options.

Subversion 1.6.9 does not have the error.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install subversion 1.6.11
2. Checkout from a server with bad cert
3. Wait for the warning message of subversion

Actual Results:  
Subversion will print the information about the bad certificate and waits for
user input. After Input it will show the input options for the prior input.

Expected Results:  
Subversion should print the input options before waiting for input.

A svn trunk with broken server cert could be found at:
