Re: 400 bad request from client

Thanks for the pointer to previous occurrences. It looks like
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2006-07/0424.shtml refers to a
similar problem.

I downloaded the svn binaries and ended up with the same problem, so
3 clients exhibited the same issue.

In this case, the fix was telling Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 to trust
the network traffic generated by the SVN clients when it is destined
for my svn server. It looks like an interaction between their http
proxy and the contents of the SVN message are causing the problem. I
put in a help desk ticket with them to see if it can be
resolved. More details on how to set Kaspersky to avoid the problem
are available at

Looking at the HTTP headers created by the SVN clients and the
content of the message doesn't yield any obvious SVN problem to be
fixed. In the sample below the actual length of the body is 235
octets, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the Content-Length header.
