This error looks unfamiliar to me. It looks like a problem with the ssh
connection, not the subversion client or server speaking over it. It
could be a bug in putty/pageant, or some other piece of network
equipment getting in the way...?

We have no known cross-platform issues. To our knowledge, different
client and server operating systems interoperate just fine.

We also have no known issues with large files; 2MB is nothing. We've
tested with multi-gigabyte files in the past. ;-)

Can you be more specific?

Subclipse doesn't use the commandline, it uses the java JNI bindings to
the Subversion C libraries.

See if you can reproduce your problem using a commandline client, and
show us. If you can't, then take the problem to the subclipse list...
we don't support subclipse here, only the core svn distribution.
