It's a serf issue and there are already open tickets /reports upstream for serf and subversion.

One special issue

Unfortunately serf will become the only supported HTTP client in subversion-1.8 (no neon support) which brings other issues on the server side.
from http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html
 - HTTP client support based on neon has been removed
 - FSFS format bump
 - http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/subversion-dev/201211.mbox/%3C021c01cdc103$5c12a1c0$1437e540$@qqmail.nl%3E
 - no delta support, file will be transferred always complete
 - ...

But also some goodies
 - Packing revision properties

subversion-1.7.8 is in the pipe to fix some 1.7.7 issues (maybe it will released during the next days, so please give Lev the time to adopt 1.7.8)
