Well, it is explained here:

But it shouldn't have anything directly to do with your problem.  More
likely, there is some network problem that is triggered by the massive
number of connections that svn is making to apache.  Perhaps it is
triggering an Anti-DoS rule someplace.  Turning KeepAlive on allows
the same requests to be made with fewer separate connections.
