We have recently a problem my dcommiting renamed files containing $ 
character in their names. GIT SVN crashed with the error:

Assertion failed: (svn_uri_is_canonical(child_uri, NULL)), function 
uri_skip_ancestor, file 
line 1519.
error: git-svn died of signal 6

After having googled a little bit I found out that the error was in 
Editor.pm script in the way how it handles special characters. There was a 
patch fixing the problem (see 
But the patch does not seem to be consistent. It does not work if a file 
name contains $. Having looked at the source file 
(https://github.com/git/git/blob/master/perl/Git/SVN/Editor.pm) and played 
with the local copy of Editor.pm I found out that $ sign must be escaped in 
the perl regex expression used in Editor.pm:148. Otherwise $ is not caught 
by the expression and get replaced with %24 which is not accepted by the 
SVN client.

Is this a bug or am I wrong completely (this could happen since I never did 
anything with Perl before ;))?
