Since migrating to OnDemand, SVN is giving 'broken pipes' error frequently

Example of the error:

Synchronize operation failed.

svn: Broken pipe

svn: PROPFIND request failed on /svn/repos

We having been frequently receiving this error when synching, updating or committing to our repository.

Generally the error will dissappear on a subsequent attempt, but it is very frustrating and time consuming to do everything twice!

I would say it happens 9 times out of 10 on first attempts. It never happened before we migrated our service to OnDemand.

Is this a known bug?

Is there any way to fix these broken pipes?

Hi Alex,

It seems to be you failed to connect your SVN instance. I guess you may need to raise a ticket at, our team will contact you regarding this.
