What do you mean 'connection is dead'? Can you ping your gateway
('route -n' to get the gateway)? If not, do you have any other
machines on the network on your side of the gateway you can try to
ping. Are you getting arp reply's from your gateway ('arp -an'). If
you do 'ifconfig' what do you see for overrun and error counts, etc.
What hardware connects you to your DSL modem (ethernet, usb?). Fire
up a sniffer (tethereal is my favorite, especially with with -V
option) and take a look at what is happenning for the good (svn 0.17)
and the bad (svn 1.0.0) checkouts. What is different, when in the
conversation does the failure occur?

A theory is that changes to the network protocol post svn 0.17 have
significantly sped things up. This could be triggering a bug in your
computer's or your DSL modems network stack.
