You could rebuild svn with the --enable-maintainer-mode configure flag.
Then you'll see the file and line number where the error is thrown.
You could then have the client break at the spot in gdb, and post a
backtrace in case it contains anything interesting (like funky-looking
function arguments). This may tell us e.g. if the problem is within
neon or within svn.
In addition to the complete neon debug output, a tcpdump -s99999 -X
of the running update would also be nice, to see what client and
server are sending to each other over the wire.
You could post this information here, or attach it to issue #3558,
