Not sure if this will help or not, but I got the same problem when I had
cygwin svnserve 1.0.6 controlling my repository on WinXP SP 2. After a
few accesses (from TSVN and command-line on the same machine the server
was running on) over svn:// would get the same error.

I couldn't dump the repo or anything.

What eventually sorted it out as to do a copy of the repo using windows
explorer (so just file copy) and I switched to using a plain win32
svnserve (not cygwin distributed one) and haven't had an error since.

I wondered whether it was an error due to cygwin mixing between unix and
dos file endings (which you specify on install as the default).

But haven't had an issue since I started using the official .zip version
of the server from subversion.tigris.org
