A search through the mailing list archive at
https://svn.haxx.se/users/ (the lists.apache.org archive doesn't seem
to go farther back than 2009?) shows some hits for backwards-sliding
windows and such, but all the ones I've found are very old posts from
2006 and 2008. Perhaps the "best" one I found was this report from
2006 that the OP later reported was caused by some antivirus software:

My best guesses would be to make sure you're using recent versions of
svn and git, check whether this error is due to any history-rewriting
gymnastics on the git side of things, and if all else fails, look into
whether antivirus or some other software is playing a role here.
