I expected a problem related to some recent fixes in serf that should be
available in the next release, but one of the serf developers ensured me
that it was not this problem.

<@lgo> Bert: serf 1.2.1 fixed an issue with htdigest, no server
authentication issues are known.
<@lgo> I have no problem syncing a repository on a server using digest
<@lgo> that is, from a repository over ra_serf with digest authn to
<@lgo> The thread on users doesn't contain a lot of info, and I'm not
subscribed to users. So if you can get some more info about his setup, exact
error message, whether that's directly or after a while ... I will look into
it further.

So I would repeat Ryan's request. Can you show us what goes wrong (with what
error) and how we can reproduce this problem?

It is quite interesting to know if this happens directly at the start or
after a huge chunk of work was completed.
