svnsync assertion error

I got problems with svnsync.
My mirror repository did synchronize successfully for several weeks (between
2 Windows server).
But one of my last commits to the repository got quite large (~130GB rev
file/ ~100.000 files)
The source repository is still OK and I can commit and update.
But my mirror does not work any more. svnsync seems to hang at the large
revision and reports a time out after a while.
It does not even start a transaction for this revision.
I looked at the httpd process on the source server and saw, that it
allocates quite a lot of memory (1.5 GB) while communicating with svnsync.
I changed than the communication protocol from apache/mod_dav_svn to svn via
Now svnsync started the replication for the problematic revision but stopped
after a while with the error message:
Assertion failed: !eb->got_status, file
orp.c, line 367
Any idea, how I could succeed with the replication?
Here my environment:
Server with source repository:
Windows server 2003 / Standard x64 Edition
Service Pack 2
SVN Version 1.5.6 (but 1.5.5 had same problem)
Server with mirror repository:
Windows Vista Ultimate / SP 1
SVN Version 1.5.6
Best Regards
