Yes, I believe you are running into a network timeout. Subversion
does a fair amount of disk i/o between network operations to maintain
the working copy dirs and large files or a slow disk can cause
the connection to be dropped before the whole transaction is complete.
(For example, duplicating a 2G file from the .svn folder to the
 working copy folder during the update may take longer than the
 default network timeout)

In your apache config, I think you want to adjust the Timeout value:

# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#####Timeout 300
Timeout 1200

Beware of setting this too high, since you can easily make
it much easier for someone to perform a denial of service
attack against your apache server...
