I have each commit start a svnsync from the master to the slave server.

The master is in Huntsville, AL, and the slave is in Lowell, AR, across
the Internet. Most of the time there is no problem at all but when the
the commit passes some magic number of bytes or seconds then the client
freaks out. The other day, I kept getting errors from the client for 1.5
hours after the (big) commit until the slave and master had synced up.

Sometimes we have to mess around with the client files to get it to stop
misbehaving (waving hands here, I don't recall all the things I've tried).
