Subject: SVN::Client appears to bleed open files
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 945b
I apologize in advance for the crappiness of this bug report; I wiped the exact error off my screen in my haste to get a needed process running again. When/if it happens again (seemingly in about 2 days) I will add it to this ticket. Basically, I think SVN::Client is bleeding open files. I'm holding an instance of it inside an object inside a long-running process which checks repositories for updates every few minutes. After between 2 and 3 days it consumes all available file descriptors and just starts throwing the same error over and over again. The error says "too many open files", and some other boilerplate-looking stuff which, as described above, I neglected to transcribe. My usage is pretty simple. There's one of these calls: $ctx->info($loc, undef, $rev, \&update_helper, 0); which is the one that happens every few minutes, and then one of these $newrev = $ctx->update($wc, 'HEAD', 1) which happens *far* less frequently.

Sorry, this is the wrong place to report bugs in the actual SVN code. This is just for the installation wrapper around it. I'll forward it on to the proper location.
