I spent some time over the weekend trying to find a STC but failed
miserably. It only occurs when svn.exe is invoked from their python test
infrastructure. I'm not familiar with it and it is complext.

Sounds like you might know the cause, so if you find a fix, I'll test it
for sure. I could also test to see if the snapshot Angelo identified is
also the culprit for me, but I don't think that will tell you much. If
you don't figure it out, I'll try again for a STC, but it won't be until
next weekend at the earliest.
