I believe this is only a limit on windows platforms.  The ra_neon
layer appears to be sending a negative size value in the http header.
Possibly a missing cast in the code.  I never was able to debug
it further.  As you found, using ra_serf (or using ra_neon on most
unix platforms) should work fine.  I've seen 20GB+ commits work.

(It appears the actual limit is the size of the compressed delta of
an individual file needs to be less than 2GB.)

You can configure the servers file to specify the use of ra_neon:
(This would actually default all clients to use serf)
