Only this specific client. Our workstation computers still run with
Ubuntu hardy and the old 0.9.8g version of OpenSSL.

The same client certificate works on all our other workstations that run
OpenSSL 0.9.8g on ubuntu hardy.

One Thing of note that I forgot in my initial post and that was
partially mentioned by Johan:

The access via the dav_svn module in a web browser from the failing
client works like a charm. There are no error messages, the SSL
handshake works fine. the content of the repository is shown in the
browser. This also works from all our regular workstations.

So this Problem seems to be subversion specific.

I will setup a test server on thursday with a current version of apache,
subversion and openssl and test if the failing client still has problems.
