What is in the server logs? Why did it close the connection? What I'm also
wondering is if there is some kind of filter in between your machine and the
server that could e.g. misdetect this as incoming mail traffic which you're
not supposed to use.

BTW: Using HTTP to communicate with a server on the web for authenticated
access is a security risk. You should use HTTPS instead. With that, you would
probably also work around the bug in above filter software, since it can't
sniff the content of the communication.

That or in between server and client.

This and the fact that you can't even delete it (which shouldn't transmit any
content) speaks against my assumptions above. However, SVN usually ignores the
content of files, so the fact that it's MIME-formatted shouldn't matter.

Good luck!
