I don't think that's it, as I can now confirm that DIGEST-MD5
does not work with Linux client/server, either. We find this in
the log file:

May 1 10:50:06 svnfe-test svnserve[1696]: encoded packet size too big (809115648 > 4096)

That looks to me like an uninitialized or otherwise corrupted len
variable, or perhaps a char * with the wrong value, pointing to a
block of memory that has a null byte after 809115648 bytes ;->.

I don't know if it's related, but I made a change to
ra_svn/cyrus_auth.c in r29241, to fix a gssapi issue. It's
possible I broke something. It's also possible that more such
changes are needed.
