    • Type: Bug

      Description

      In my .bashrc file I set my terminal to utf-8 mode with ESC % G. Here is an example command to drop into this mode:
      
      echo -ne '\033%G'
      
      After this any attempt to access the remote repo over ra_svn with ssh tunneling results in:
      
      svn: Malformed network data
      svn: Malformed network data
      
      Everything still works perfectly in all other modes including ra_svn using plain old sockets connecting to svnserve -d when in utf-8 mode. Running in non utf-8 mode fixes the problem.
      
      Details:
      
       * OpenSSH 3.1p1
       * RedHat 7.3 i386
       * svn .17.1 installed from your rpms
       * verified in both xterm and the gnome terminal
       * This seems to be independent of my locale settings
       * I am using no non-ascii characters when working with svn at this point
