No, there certainly shouldn't be.

1.0.5, presumably? Not that it matters.

That's very odd, and there's certainly nothing in the svn protocol that
has anything to do with password length. Assuming you're not tunnelling
over another protocol (i.e. svn+ssh), all password authentication is
done using CRAM-MD5 - and that has nothing at all to do with password
A network capture of the traffic between the client and server might
shed some light, if you're able to provide it.
