That makes things better, now httpd grows to 130MB during the update, but I
still get only 2/3 of the files out of the repository then the server closes
the connection (without any error message in syslog or error_log).

BTW. I my repository only contains 4200 files and not 42,000 as I originaly
wrote. Must have been too tired when I read this extra zero... (but really

After this update the DB Files are soemhow locked and the only thing that
had help is to run a db_recover on the db files, otherwise any access to the
repository simply hangs.

When I now try to run a svn up in the half checked out working copy, I get
errors about file not found in transaction. Seems there is still something
left from the failed update, also I have rebooted the machine in between.

I try to investigate further. Any ideas are welcome.
