Hello, and thanks for your answer.

I don't use SSPI authentication. My server is a simple svnserve server
(the svn protocol is thus used) on my own machine, and authentication
is done with the basic passwd file in the conf directory of the svn
repo. Nothing fancy, default configuration except for the write
authorizations.
Moreover, this occurs during a merge, and anonymous access is
authorized for read operations, so I guess authentication isn't even
necessary here.
When I look at it, it looks as if MBytes are displayed instead of
KBytes, and KBytes instead of bytes. When I do a switch, the transfer
rate is around 4 kBytes/sec and the total amount of bytes transferred
looks right, and whe I do (or simply test) a merge, the transfer rate
is around 20000kBytes/sec., and the amount of bytes transferred looks
1000 times too large.
