Thanks for your reply. What you might be able to do to debug it is to
create a repository with a gazillion png-files (for example by checking
out widelands from sourceforge.net). Then you could investigate how svn
behaves during massive property changes. Do something like this:
find -name *.png|xargs svn propset svn:mime-type whatever
svn ci -m "See if this works all right..."

The problem could be that the server runs out of memory while handling
all those files.
