I've encountered this problem as well. Recently we also stored some large
binary files in our repository (like, an hour ago). We get the error during
an 'merge' from the trunk into a working copy of a branch.

'revert' and 'update' work fine from the branch working copy after we
encounter the error.

'update' into a trunk working copy works fine as well.

The problem occurs during post processing after the merge reaches the last
affected file.

We managed to work around the problem by specifying a subdirectory of the
trunk from which to merge. It's a mystery, but we didn't see the problem

We're running linux version 0.19.0 with ra_dav, ra_local and ra_svn. We
access the repository through http.

Any insight into this problem would be most appreciated.
