Subversion 1.1.4 is out, and I'm curious if it fixes this issue that I 
submitted to the subversion devel mailing list:

Configuring Subversion on a new i386 FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE box I decided
to turn on the following optimizations in make.conf:

CFLAGS= -Os -pipe

gcc (GCC) 3.4.2 [FreeBSD] 20040728

While compiling the subversion port subversion-1.1.3 with these flags,
compilation succeeds w/o error, however errors occur during execution.
While using TortoiseSVN on windows, and doing an svn+ssh checkout I
consistently get 'svn: Malformed network data' errors at a point, and am
unable to further the checkout process on repeated attempts.

I've found the only way to resolve this issue was by recompiling
subversion with the following:

CFLAGS= -O -pipe

This information may be handy for anyone else getting this nondescript
error from subversion.  I'm not knowledgeable enough in debugging to try
to tackle where the problem might be.  I encourage anyone else to try to
duplicate this issue. I get the same issue when doing -O2.

In some quick, informal testing, no errors are apparant.
This may lead to being a FreeBSD issue, or perhaps just my particular
