Your email does not indicate the type of access method that is being used, "svn:", "http:",
etc., so I'm just going to make some assumptions.

If you are using http: as your access method and assuming you are using Apache HTTPD as your
web server, you should check some of the Apache timeout values. We found that by changing
Apache's timeouts from the default of 5 minutes to around 30 minutes, our connections stopped
dropping on large checkouts and commits. Look in your Apache configuration for the Timeout
directive; on RHEL, Timeout defaults to 120 seconds.

FYI, you are using a really old version of the svn server (1.6) and an old version of TortoiseSVN.
