Commit fails, Corrupt Client Message - Missing XML

At work we are using Subversion through Apache. All the other developers are
able to use Subversion with no problems.

I am able to check out, but I can not commit.


On the client side the commit fails with the following:


Commit Failed (details follow):
OPTIONS request failed on < repository name >
OPTIONS of < repository name > : 200 OK

On the server side:

The Apache access.log file has the following:
<my ip address> -- [06/May/2008:17:56:09 -0500] "OPTIONS < repository name >
HTTP/1.1" 200 -



I have narrowed the problem down to my development laptop. I have a
development desktop that I am able to commit with, but the laptop won't.

Using Wireshark I pulled out the following stream from the laptop connection
(Note: I removed the repository and host so my boss won't get pissed)
(Note: I added the Client/Server Message lines for clarity)

Client Message
OPTIONS < repository removed > HTTP/1.1
Host: < hostname removed >
User-Agent: SVN/1.4.6 (r28521) neon/0.27.2
Connection: TE, Keep-Alive
TE: trailers
Content-Length: 104
Content-Type: text/xml

Server Message
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 06 May 2008 19:07:38 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.4 (Win32) SVN/1.4.5 mod_python/3.3.1 Python/2.5.1
PHP/5.2.3 DAV/2
DAV: 1,2

DAV: merge,baseline,activity,version-controlled-collection
MS-Author-Via: DAV
Content-Length: 0
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=100

Content-Type: text/plain

Looking at my desktop box that does allow me to commit there was some XML
data at the end of the Client Message.

Could this be causing my problems?

I looked at another developer's box and Wireshark showed that he also had the
XML content in his client message.

All the boxes are Windows XP and the Server is Windows 2003.

Thanks for any help,
R Thomspon
