svnserve daemon dying sometimes

I have some reports of the svnserve daemon dying under vanilla fedora 15.

My story is simple...
I was need svn repository for my students on the course C/C++
programming, like each semester.
So, I installed vanilla Fedora 15, configure and start vanilla svn
1.6.17 with svn:// (svnserve) scheme.

Everything going ok (students are happy, commiting, checkouting etc.),
but it's a third times when svnserve daemon died without any reason.

Maybe I did something wrong in configuration...
Maybe is something wrong on the students svn clients (tortoise svn)...
But result is always same, svnserve sometimes dying. And this isn't good.

I don't want start some "fire", but maybe is something wrong in svnserve
Because svnserve log after dying is very strange?

Can you please contact me with some developer which response of
svnserve security. This looks like strange vulnerability in svn daemon.

I have svnserve logs and effort to solve this problem...
Thanks for your answer.


PS: sorry for my english. ;-)
