Thanks, I've tried the source RPM with the same results. On a whim, I
thought I'd (once again) check using svn+ssh:// and that also hung on
me for the first time, so it seems it's not specifically a neon/dav
sort of problem.

Trouble is, it's intermittent. This morning I've been able to checkout
from a number of different repositories using both svn+ssh and http.
Works 5 out of 10 times. If I interrupt the checkout, then move into
the partial working copy's directory and run 'svn up' it has always
finished the checkout successfully.

Not sure which tree to bark up next. Do you suppose it's a CentOS
specific issue (since I have to CentOS boxes behaving this way) or
something on the server or perhaps a combination of the two? I'm happy
to provide more information if it will help.
