I had the same problem and found this using TSVN 1.5/1.6 in relation to
mod_dav_svn option SVNAllowBulkUpdates.
Default value option is On, and in this case memory leak is present when
checking out a big tree.
When option is turned Off, no memory leak anymore.
I also noticed that Collab Net SVN command line 1.6 didn't lead to a memory
leak with option On (but still memory consumption was higher than with
option Off, and only one apache process seemed to be used).

Note that I have mod_deflate active with following:
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml

client implementation.

How does this work with TSVN? Would it be possible to tune this using a
