Re: Very large file commit fails over WAN

Its a common problem due to inherent issues with Neon. Your best bet is
to compile your own version of SVN client, including patches that have
been submitted on Neon Mailing list for Neon 0.26.x (I haven't had luck
with Neon Trunk to successfully compile SVN client), as this issue
doesn't seem to be on horizon for a bug fix release. Its been known for
a while. Good news is user submitted patches work.

TortoiseSVN has very comprehensive build instructions, so it should be
fairly straight forward for you to fix it.

Hope this helps,
