My guess would be this issue in serf:
http://code.google.com/p/serf/issues/detail?id=77

The 1.7 client uses neon instead of serf and optionally supports serf,
but not many people used serf with 1.7 clients.
Support for neon has been removed as of 1.8. The serf developers are
working hard on issues that pop up now that people are actually using it.

Please use 1.7 clients for now if this is a show stopper for you,
and upgrade to a fixed version of serf once it is released.
You don't need to upgrade Subversion itself for this fix.
