Sorry, I have no further ideas. svn+ssh is working fine for me here
using both Cygwin and Debian as the server. Debian is running Subversion

I personally lack the technical skills to decode the stack trace. Maybe
someone else can. Alternatively, you could theoretically download the

The script at [1] shows how to do this. Unfortunately...

... this is a crash in the cygwin DLL.

Also unfortunately, the stackdump doesn't record the DLLs loaded and their bases addresses, so we can only guess which one ended up at 0x00000003e0000000

subversion debug package and reproduce the error in gdb to get a
backtrace. Again, my C/gdb skills are rusty, so I can't provide any
details about how to do that.

So see also [2] and note well the point about 'set cygwin-exceptions on'
