Subversion+Apache can put a lot of strain on your server/network. Are
you sure there's nothing such as bad RAM or network cards playing up?
I don't know which other way to search... But, as always (still don't
know your svn version): the latest official release is more stable
than the previous ones: even in 'the core 1.0 functionality' we put
out fixes in newer releases.

No, there are none other than the standard Apache logs. All low-level
requests (HTTP) are logged there. I think there is now in 1.3 or 1.4
some higher level logging available which you need to configure, but
that won't be helpfull here.
