This is fixed in 1.6 for *nix clients. It is still a problem on
Windows. That said, Serf does not have this problem on Windows, so
you can use it to do the commit. I tested using a 2.5 GB file. It
failed with Neon and worked with Serf. I suspect Serf would work with
SVN 1.5 too (as long as APR 1.2.x is used in the client).
