Problem checking out a large repository via http, but works via filesystem access

WARNING: I'm pretty new to Subversion. I'm just at the experimentation
stage right now.

I've imported a large piece of a Perforce repository into a Subversion
repository. Initially I accessed this new repository via
file:///path/to/repo. The checked out working directory is about 8.5GB.
After setting up Apache 2 and having problems with file permissions when
using WebDAV and local filesystem access, I decided I was going to try
restrict access to being via WebDAV only. That's when the problems started.

I've tried checking out the entire contents of the repository via
Apache2 a couple times now, and it has failed in both instances. The
first time was using http://hostname.../ and the second was using
http://localhost.../. After 520 minutes, I get a failure saying that the
Chunk delimiter was invalid:

10:23:03 bubbles$ time svn checkout -q http://localhost/svn/
wd svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: REPORT of '/svn/!svn/vcc/default': Chunk delimiter was invalid

real 520m14.476s
user 508m58.072s
sys 5m49.832s

Checking out using file:///... worked, and only took 57 minutes:

08:53:03 bubbles$ time sudo -u www-data svn checkout -q
file:///path/to/svnrepo wd

real 57m11.735s
user 31m46.316s
sys 2m57.392s

I should also report the version of Subversion and host info:

11:12:32 bubbles$ svn --version
svn, version 1.0.3 (r9775)
   compiled May 20 2004, 00:00:18

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
  - handles 'http' schema
  - handles 'https' schema
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - handles 'svn' schema

This is all on a Debian system:

:12:37 bubbles$ uname -a
Linux bubbles 2.4.20 #4 SMP Tue Jun 17 12:40:34 ADT 2003 i686 unknown

Has anyone had this type of problem before?
