bug: wedged server causes svn client to hang, not respond to SIGINT

I realize this is a really lousy bug report, since I don't know how to
reproduce the problem, but I figured I'd send it anyway just in case it
might be of some use. The apache httpd handling our department's svn
repository access recently got stuck in some kind of wedged state, where
it would (apparently) accept connections but not respond to requests.
This caused the svn client to silently hang when attempting to update or
commit. The client would produce no output, and would not respond to
any signals save for SIGKILL.

Restarting the apache on the server fixed the problem, and I suspect the
cause of the server problems was not svn-related at all. However, the
unresponsive behavior of the client certainly seems like a bug. My svn
client version is "1.2.3 (r15833) compiled Dec 6 2005, 12:08:31". I
realize this is over half a year old (I'm running debian stable), so I
apologize for wasting your time if this issue has already been fixed in
newer versions. I could test it myself if I could reproduce the server
problem in the first place, but as I said I don't know how to do that.

Thanks for your time,

Ilmari Karonen
