Exact error message help when trying to diagnose problems, then we
don't have to guess :-)

Are you getting a SEGV running the client, a SEGV running the server,
an "out of memory" message, or what?

Let's assume you get a SEGV running the client.

I cannot reproduce this with HEAD, and it runs clean under valgrind.
You will need to do more to identify the problem. Please run the
program under gdb and show us the stack trace

$ gdb /path/to/svn
(gdb) r ci filename -m 'the long message....'
Program received SIGSEGV
(gdb) bt

This indicates that you are using a proxy that doesn't support all the
HTTP methods required. Reconfigure your proxy (if you can), or use
port 81, see
