This looks very much like the error I ran into during testing of 1.8.3, and which spawned
the following discussion on the dev-list:

(it was with an 'svn export' over plain http of a tag of the subversion project itself, but
the problem might be the same)

Lieven Govaerts and Ivan Zhakov have been trying to find the exact problem in the serf http-library
(with me trying various patches and reproducing the issue), but so far without success.

It's good to know that now I'm not the only one seeing this problem.

Likewise :-)

Can you report your OS version please?

Windows7 x64

Can you reproduce it with Antivirus disabled?

I'm first trying with 1.8.3, then I'll try without antivirus/compression. Takes a long time
as it's a massive checkout.

Also: I couldn't reproduce the issue with compression disabled, by adding the option
    --config-option servers:global:http-compression=off
to the command line (or configure that setting in your 'servers'
configuration file). That might be a workaround for you (though it will probably make things
go a lot slower).
