Problems committing large Excel files using Tortoise 1.2.6, Windows XP SP 1. Server version becomes corrupt.

I'm working with a group of users who use large (~20Mb) Excel Files. They
are seeing errors on attempting to check in the files. Actual file and host
names removed.

Error: Commit: failed details follow:
Error: PUT of
File Path Name
Error: Could not send request body: An Established connection was aborted by
Error: software in your host machine. (Host Name)

I was able to reproduce this on a users machine after a reboot, creation of
a new working copy, modification of the file, successful check in,
modification of the file, failed check in.

My working theory was that the Excel file was being modified on the client
during the check in process (Tortoise checks in even if Excel has the file
open with a lock). However I did ensure that Excel was closed and ran GUN
Win32 sum on the file before and after check in. It was unchanged. If a new
working copy is created the file on download is the correct length but is no
longer a valid Excel file.

I'm not able to reproduce the problem using the same file and repository
from my lap top at the same location. Though several users in this group
have seen this problem from different machines. So I'm convinced something
on the users machine is impacting the transmission.

Welcome any thoughts on possible causes, or next steps in diagnosis.
