Bug: committing large propteries over HTTP

From: Ron Ward <ward_at_usq.edu.au>

There appears to be a bug if you try and commit a file with a large property over HTTP.
For example:
If you add a property to a file (1 MB or larger in size,
  or multiple properties that have a total size of 1 MB or larger)
And the attempt to commit the file over http://, it fails with the message:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: At least on property change failed: repository is unchanged.

NOTE: This works OK via the file:// and svn:// protocol
It is only failing via http://
And I can commit very large files without any problems.

A quick and easy way to reproduce this error is as follows:
Add a simple test.txt file to a svn repository that is using the http:// protocol.
Add a large property to this file. e.g.
svn ps propName -F OneMegFile test.txt
Then try and commit this file. e.g.
svn commit test.txt -m “testing”
