First, scale back the complexity. Does svn work on the machine itself, with
local file-based operations? If so, then test it with HTTP only, leaving
HTTPS out of the mix, with a throwaway account and password. If not, does
simply browsing the repository with a web browser work, particularly examing
the files you generated in the local file-based operations test?

Only after those all work should you be worrying about using HTTPS, not
because HTTPS isn't prefereable, but because integrating
HTTP+SSL+Webdav+Subversion on top of a relatively obscure and unsupported OS
as OS/2 is begging for pain.

SIGSEGV is a serious error, a segmentation fault: it's hard to tell what's
causing it, but I'm guessing it's your subversion slient.
