I sure wish we had a way to reproduce your commit timeout problems.
You claim http-compression is "no", but IIRC, your win32 client may or
may not have been reading your registry or config-file. Did you ever
figure out how to ensure that mod_deflate was totally deactivated on
the server-side? The fact that you get a timeout *at all* indicates
to me that the server is still buffering a compressed repsonse.

And what do you mean by "timeout on a large commit corrupted the
repository"? You mean, you had to run 'svnadmin recover'? That
shouldn't happen. If the client MERGE repsonse timed out, it means
the commit succeeded, but the working copy was never notified. But
there should be any repository recovery problems. (If there are, then
that's a whole new topic to discuss.)

As for the checkout -- "chunk read error"? Never even heard of that
error... from anyone, actually, ever. I'd like to hear more about it.

I'll let ghudson field this question...
