Problem report: commit failed with E195023: Changing file ... is forbidden by the server

I had an IRC chat with Daniel Shahaf who recommended to open an issue
here after checking the issues at tigris. I didn't find this problem
there, so here it is:

Using svn 1.7.5 on Solaris 10 Sparc compiled with gcc 4.7.1.

Libs: apr 1.4.6, apr-util 1.4.1,
       serf 1.1.0, neon 0.29.6,
       OpenSSL 1.0.1c, SQLite 3.7.13,
       libmagic from file 5.11

I wanted to commit a change in the ASF repository for the httpd web
server. Error message (all day):

Sending include/httpd.h
Sending modules/http/http_protocol.c
Sending modules/lua/lua_vmprep.c
Transmitting file data .svn: E195023: Commit failed (details follow):

Daniel recommended to try

svn commit --config-option=servers:global:http-libray=serf

to make sure serf is chosen and not neon. The commit then worked:


But: after this another commit worked even without the config-option and
without any change to svn configuration:


This is the access log entry that Daniel extacted for the second
successful commit (r1361791).

Unfortunately currently I can't reproduce :(
