        Just wanted to write and thank you for what you stated. I added the line to our Apache config file and after a restart, was able to add and commit files without the constant request for a username/password which ultimately would fail.
        In testing multiple times, we were able to add and commit 4756 files (all at once) without it failing once.
        Thanks again.. -Jeff

It's a neon/sspi issue. Edit your apache config file, then add the line SSPIPerRequestAuth = on to the section where you've configured the mod_auth_sspi module (you might have to update to a newer version of that module).

The problem is that the default setting of sspi is so that the authentication times out, and neon would have to re-authenticate. But neon doesn't handle the re-authentication well enough.
