Subversion plugin, svn: E210004: Handshake failed error

Subversion plugin, svn: E210004: Handshake failed error

Before I upgraded Jira to version 5.2.3, I upgraded Subversion to version Now only half of our repositories are able to connect correctly after the upgrade. The other half are getting the error: svn: E210004: Handshake failed, received: ''

In the error logs we are getting a rather large chunk of whitespace in the error logs.

I haven't been able to find anything relating to this error, other than errors associated with something called Team City, which we aren't using.

In the error file we are seeing:

2013-01-02 10:35:19,073 QuartzWorker-0 ERROR ServiceRunner Subversion Revision Indexing Service plugin.ext.subversion.SubversionManagerImpl Connection to Subversion repository svn://<server>/<repository> failed: org.tmatesoft.svn.core.SVNException: svn: E210004: Handshake failed, received: ' <large chunk="" of="" spaces="">'

Thanks for your help!

May I know which URL that you access to repository? Is that the valid URL repo?

both of the repositories that work and those that don't work are configured the same way.

the repository root is svn://<server>/<repository> then the Changeset Format is http://<server>/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi?root=<repository>&view=rev&rev=${rev}. The rest of the File * Format url's follow after the changeset format url. The thing that is really wierd is that i have 9 repositories set up like this and 5 of them are failing and 4 of them are just fine.
