"Could not read chunk size" when trying to checkout or update on Windows (after 2gb downloaded)

We have a fairly large SVN repository, and it has reached the point where it surpasses 2gb worth of files.
When checking out the files on Linux, everything works fine. But on Windows Vista when checking out (or updating) with the command-line, or tortoiseSVN, smartSVN etc, after 2.15GB have been downloaded, we get a "Could not read chunk size" error (on smartSVN it says "chunked stream ended unexpectedly REPORT request failed on 'svn/myrepo/!svn/vcc/default'). You can then continue the failed checkout by doing an SVN update, then it will download 2.15GB more of files and fail again.
Is this a common problem? If so, do you know if there's anything that can be done (perhaps a patch?) to rectify the problem?
