As far as I was following the story behind #4557 the underlying
implementation change in SVN is that multiple locks (and also
deletes/adds?) were now presented in the http-header rather than in the
http-body (which was the case in < 1.9). That in combination with the
reduction of the default max header-section size in Apache httpd led to
the described issue in #4557.

Since that case could be triggered using the SVN command line client, to
users it was a regression for the case of deleting multiple files and
therefore was fixed in 1.9.4 for that particular situation (aka:
deleting multiple paths).

The same underlying issue however still persists for locks/adds in
1.9.4. However, these are only noticeable issues for API users. So if I
make use of the API to lock multiple files, SVN >= 1.9 would create a
longer http-header section than 1.8 did which then in combination with
the http-header-limit setting would cause my call to fail with 1.9,
while it succeeds with 1.8.

Independent from what might have caused the "Java-SSL-tunnel" issue,
this to me sounds like a "bug" from an API user's point of view.

Issue 1:"replacing directory containing many files with locks"-issue
(the one you mentioned)
Issue 2: "ra_serf fails to lock/delete multiple files" (aka: the case
described above).
