Win32 subversion server and large binary files: problem

From: Kostik Belousov <kostikbel_at_ukr.net>

Hello,

at the place I'm working subversion server 1.0.5 is installed
on windows 2000 SP4 together with apache httpd 2.0.50.
Apache binaries where downloaded from http://httpd.apache.org,
subversion (also in binary form) taken from subversion.tigris.org.

It works mostly ok, I successfully perform checkin/checkouts
from freebsd 4.10/solaris 9/x86 clients (svn clients
installed from ports/hand compiled resp., version 1.0.5 too).

The problem we encounter is checkout of large binary files.
Example:

deviant% svn co http://srv/svn/test/bigfiles
A bigfiles/trunk
A bigfiles/trunk/800k.file
svn: Invalid diff stream: insn 0 overflows the target view
(deviant runs freebsd 4.10, srv - w2k machine)

800k.file is result of
        dd if=/dev/urandom of=800k.file bs=1024 count=800

The error message is not always the same, e.g.
pork% svn co http://srv/svn/test/bigfiles
A bigfiles/trunk
A bigfiles/trunk/800k.file
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/test/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: The REPORT request returned invalid XML in the response: XML parse error at line 3625: no element found (/svn/test/!svn/vcc/default)
(pork runs solaris 9/x86)

The analogous errors are raised when checkout is done from windows machine.

Examination of the server response with ethereal
shows that xml in the answer is truncated.

The problem does NOT appear if the server runs on freebsd 4.10 (mod_dav_svn
and apache 2.0.50 from ports), it seems to be windows-specific.
Search of the subversion issue tracker does not reveal
similar error.

Please, advise.
