Ok, Daniel sent me the output of the neon debug trace offline, and
here's the interesting bit of it:

<D:creator-displayname>NY-S&B\dscharfman</D:creator-displayname>

Note the & in there. What happened here is that somewhere in the
repository (revision 488 I think) there's a svn:author property that's
got an ampersand in it, when it should have been encoded. This could
have happened via several means (a non-DAV client that was buggy, for
example), but that's neither here nor there.

Now to fix it, I believe the easiest way is to use file:// access to
the repos and do an svn pset --revprop -r 488 svn:author
some-name-without-an-ampersand file:///path/to/repos.
