Hi Julien,

Yes, you are right, as the script does'nt really handle such kind of
footer, it seems to be a bug.
As i have devoted too much time to it initially, i thought i will give a
break for it and come back, so that i might get some fresh ideas. Any how
its always in back of my mind, and i am thinking to fix the script and then
post relevant BUG. Also, if possible i am planning to try the same from
Linux machine too, just to make sure i am not stuck with windows specific
svn problems.

Thanks a lot for all the info provided. Will try Tools/Scripts/webkit-patch
Please kindly let me know if u want me to include you in the CC list in
case i file a bug on this?
