Summary109: Unable to call svn.exe on Windows, problem with shell_exec()
DescriptionI'm having a strange issue related to shell_exec() being unable to properly call svn.exe on my Windows-system. Everything is set-up properly (WebSVN on the same system works just fine), so I'm a bit unsure as to what's really happening...

The problem is very simply that shell_exec() returns nothing, no errors either, when svn.exe is called. The call is correct, executing exactly the same command in the console works just fine.
The SVN executable is in the PATH, so simply calling "svn.exe" should also work, but doesn't produce any results when used through shell_exec(). Other commands (e.g. "dir") produce proper output when called through shell_exec().

I've modified the svn.exe call generated by SourceSVNPlugin::svn_binary() by adding the following on line 314 of SourceSVN.php:

$t_binary = "start /B /D \"$t_path\" svn.exe";

This (windows-specific) command simply wraps around the call to svn.exe. The only "out of the ordinary" thing it does is allow you to specify the target directory as a parameter instead of as part of the command itself.

After this modification everything started working just fine. All SVN data is properly read into my Mantis installation.

I've tried the latest version of Source Integration (2010-02-23, ff8a1696ab526147e1d7d8c1300650193c233201) in combination with the 1.2.0 release of Mantis. I am using Windows Server 2008-R2 with PHP 5.3.0 running through fcgid on Apache2.
