Subversion 1.7 issues

Some reported that they cannot commit anymore to Subversion
repositories at netlabs.org. The error message is something like this:
'/repos/wse_events/!svn/me' path not found
Knut and I analyzed the problem today and found out it only happens
with Subversion 1.7.x clients, 1.6 seems to work fine. 1.7 introduced
several changes and last week I updated to 1.7.3 on the server.
Unfortunately that seems to have caused the problem with the client.
After some dumps Knut pointed me to the fact that we get a TRAC error
message when we do a svn commit with a 1.7 client. This means the TRAC
handler comes into the game even if it should not (it's subversion at
that point, not TRAC). Disabling TRAC temporary proved that, like this
it worked fine.
According to the TRAC homepage it should work with latest TRAC version
but I don't have a FreeBSD port for that yet.
I hope to get a new port soon, will post here when the problem is
solved. Meanwhile use Subversion 1.6 or wait for the fix.
