RE: Checksum mismatch error becoming critical

If this is a network issue then it must be a problem on the server side
because this is occurring on multiple clients and not just my machine. I
also get checksum errors when checking out files from my Linux box from the
command line. Has anyone else had issues running subversion on Red Hat Linux
7.2?

I see this often, too. Why aren't the network packets checksum'ed? If they
are, how is valid data received from the network being applied to the .svn
working copy such that the checksum fails?
