No, I didn't try that yet. I'm afraid I'll lose the ability to
reproduce this issue :-). But okay, I might give that a try later (and
then reinstall it back to continue the investigation).

Okay, just tried with compression disabled, but I haven't been able to
reproduce it that way. I tried the export 10 times or so, without a
problem.

After that, I switched compression back on, and also found that it was
somehow harder to reproduce (had to try 4 times or so, before I hit an
error). Perhaps some condition related to timing changed slightly.

For some reason, I also sometimes got another error:
[[[
..\..\..\subversion\svn\export-cmd.c:127,
..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_client\export.c:1441,
..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_client\export.c:1334,
..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_ra_serf\update.c:2981: (apr_err=120105)
svn: E120105: Error retrieving REPORT: The server sent an improper HTTP response
]]]

Will try again now a bit with compression disabled.
