Posting here first in case there's some trivial config thing I
overlooked. I'm pretty sure this is a TSVN-specific issue because
SyncroSVN and SmartSVN work fine with the same server.

Tested with TortoiseSVN and also the nightly build The command-line svn.exe build 1.4.5 from CollabNet, and
the svn.exe from the nightly build directory of tortoisesvn.tigris.org
also show the same error.

This happens pretty consistently at the ~40 MB mark, no matter what

operations without error.

Any ideas? neon bug?
