problems when using subversion over http with large files

Hallo,

we are using subversion on a couple of quite large repozitories.
In our setup we have apache2 with ldap authentication and dav_svn.

Until recently we where running subversion 1.1.4 and now for a while
we run 1.2 with similar results.

In one of the repositories we have cca. 4-6 GB of data with files of
size up to 80 GB.

With this repository we have problems. Clients connecting to the
repository hang. In the apache error log we get something like:

[Thu Jul 27 09:26:00 2006] [notice] child pid 12349 exit signal
Segmentation fault (11)

...

[Thu Jul 27 09:34:15 2006] [error] [client 10.2.0.8] Provider
encountered an error while streaming a REPORT response. [500, #0]
[Thu Jul 27 09:34:15 2006] [error] [client 10.2.0.8] A failure
occurred while driving the update report editor [500, #190004]

When this happends, we do 'svnadmin recover' and it temporarily fixes
the problem.

Our clients are recent versions of tortoise svn for windows, but it
seems like the client version doesn't matter.

To me it seems, that the problem occurs more frequently since we have
large files in the repository.

I wonder if other people have this type of data managed by SVN and if
they have similar problems.

Should I try different setup? Standalone subversion server (no
apache), or would version 1.3 help?

We are using berkeley backend, would fsfs be better?

Thanks for any help.

Regards,
