RE: warning: duplicate LogHistory entry found

If only that were the case.... The problem is that a static variable is
defined at line 618 in src/parseinfo.c. It is set when the first
--allow-root option is processed for our first repository and then when
the second --allow-root option is processed, the warning message is
issued (erroneously, I believe) saying that another LogHistory line is
encountered. But this is for a completely different repository, so it
should have no relevance to the first config file.

Unless, serving multiple repositories is for some reason no longer
supported or the new syntax for using sections in a common config file
is now mandatory. I hadn't seen any indications that either were
intended, hence my question.

The worst part is that the message is apparently sent to the client too
early in the initialization / authentication protocol and the client
considers it an unrecognized auth response and quits. I have removed the
offending lines in our copy and then everything seems to work well. I'm
wondering if the introduction of these lines was inadvertent as the
checkin comment for that revision (a merge from 1.11.x) doesn't seem to
apply since these lines were never in that branch.

I think Derek is likely the only one who can tell us for sure.

Thanks for the response, though, at least I know someone saw my message!
