Earmarked donation to the SVN Project

I am interesed in making an earmarked donation to the SVN project!

Is there a contact person or a dev group that is able to fix the bug that
is described below?

All tested combinations of client and server installations show up the
same problem and there are available a number of equal problem reports
within internet discussion boards. So a bugfix will solve a general
problem with the windows implementation. (beside others... but this will
be a topic for another donation :)

If there any questions on how to reproduce the bug please do not hesitate
to contact me.

Best regards

------- bug report -------
There is a serious bug within the MS Windows SVN implementation (or a
dependand library). The bug will arise, when dealing with big
repositories. When you are transferring big amounts of data (ci, co,
update) to/from the repository the used system ressources are rising until
there are no network-connections available any more. At this point of time
no windows application is able to open network connections until the
originating svn process is running into a timeout error or it is killed.
This Problem occures when transferring data via the protocols http://,
https:// and svn://.
When checking in large amounts of data the transaction will fail.
Workaround: large directories and files (bigger than 150MB) have to be
splitted into multiple parts.
When updating and checking out the transaction fails: Workaround: perform
a checkout multiple times until the working copy is in-sync with the
Tested scenarios at the server side:
  SVN 1.2.x (Solaris)
  SVN 1.2.x (Linux)
  SVN 1.4.x (Linux)
At the client side
  SVN 1.2.3 (Windows, svn cmd line client)
  SVN 1.4.x (Windows, svn cmd line client)
  TortoiseSVN 1.2.4, Build 4479 - 32 Bit
    Subversion 1.2.3,
    apr 0.9.6
    apr-iconv 0.9.5
    apr-utils 0.9.6
    berkeley db 4.3.28
    neon 0.24.7
    OpenSSL 0.9.8 05 Jul 2005
    zlib 1.2.3
All tested installations have the same problems... Clients at Linux
machines do not show the describes problem.
Contents in the repository (/trunc/): ~17000 files in 3500 directories
