I received the following message when running
SVN UPDATE --SET-DEPTH INFINITY on Windows (build 1.8.9 downloaded from VisualSVN site):
THIS APPLICATION HAS HALTED DUE TO AN UNEXPECTED ERROR.
A CRASH REPORT AND MINIDUMP FILE WERE SAVED TO DISK, YOU CAN FIND THEM HERE:
This seems to happen only when downloading many large files (like third-party DLLs) or many, many small files (I am guessing about 3000 files). This seems to be a problem with 1.8 as 1.7 never did this (again my guess)
I have also tried the svn included with 1.8.7 version of TortoiseSVN and it pops up the "encountered an error and needs to close" message.
Any suggestion on how to solve this?
