Subversion 1.6.6 stalls on Windows SSL servers

Asked by Jason R. Coombs on 2010-07-23

Last year, I encountered a problem with SlikSVN 1.6.6, a Windows subversion client, when connecting to Windows Subversion Servers running SSL:

It turns out the problem is with libneon 0.29.0 and was fixed in 0.29.1 (if I recall correctly).

By default, Ubuntu 10.4 installs subversion 1.6.6 and libneon 0.29.0 and experiences the problem. To replicate the problem, do the following:

sudo apt-get install subversion
svn ls

You will get a listing, but then the process will stall for a long period of time (minutes) until the SSL connection times out. On other versions of libneon, SSL connections to Windows servers behave in a reasonable manner (no delays).

What's the appropriate work-around?
