error - "Provider encountered an error while streaming a REPORT response. [500, #0]"

Our subversion's Apache service been crashing on us for the last few
days.. Before shuting down, this is what we find in the error.log:

[Wed Mar 25 18:40:58 2009] [error] [client 192.x.x.x] Provider
encountered an error while streaming a REPORT response. [500, #0]
[Wed Mar 25 18:40:58 2009] [error] [client 192.x.x.x] A failure occurred
while driving the update report editor [500, #190004]

Tracking down the 190004 code, this seems to be the error
SVN_ERR_APMOD_CONNECTION_ABORTED. (Not sure why the first log prints #0
as the error code). It actually seems to be a buggy error handling
condition in the APR/APR_SVN interface.

Actually, looking at Apache's error.log, I see that the above error
occurs from time to time, but at some point crashes the Apache service.
Looking at the access.log file, I see that a huge transaction was
occuring just before the crash:

192.x.x.x - abcde [25/Mar/2009:18:28:09 -0400] "REPORT
/svn/abc/!svn/vcc/default HTTP/1.1" 200 2435626465

2435626465 -> Something like 2.3 gigz.

I do not have the output from the client side.

I know the repository in question is pretty large (~30 gigz), with files
in the 1 gigabyte range, but I was wondering why the service crashed on
long/slow transfers? Is there a limitation on the file size/transfer
size SVN-Apache can handle?

Here are the versions running:

SVN server 1.5.6
Apache 2.0.63
 w/mod_dav_svn.so (1.5.6)
 w/mod_authz_svn.so (1.5.6)
Clients all in the 1.5.x series
Server OS: Windows 2003 Standard

I've searched through the user-database and found this:

But there doesn't seem to be an actual solution to the problem. Have you
guys ever encountered this? Any fix/workaround? Let me know if you
need more information on the setup -- the condition is somewhat easy to

Thanks for any input!
