RE: SVN 1.8 timeout fix

There is no proxy between the client and server. As my original email stated, I could see using netstat that there were tcp connections left in the FIN_WAIT_2 state and the Apache documentation suggests this could be a bug in the client. Also as the Apache documentation suggested, disabling KeepAlive resolved the issue. See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/fin_wait_2.html
Whatever the problem is, when I disable Keepalive I can't browse the repositories from a browser. http://grokbase.com/t/subversion/users/136n5tvzx1/tsvn-and-svn-1-8-0-cannot-digest-authenticate suggests it is a serf bug.

I don't know what would cause that. A skelta-mode checkout uses a large number of small requests while a bulk-mode checkout uses a small number of large requests. Is there an HTTP proxy between the client and server?

serf is a client-side library. There is no way a serf bug can affect a web browser (I'm guessing you have not written your own web browser that uses serf :) You must be seeing some other problem.
