Debian's Subversion uses GnuTLS rather than OpenSSL.  I suppose you
could build an older/newer GnuTLS and try that.  Or you could rebuild
Subversion and neon to use OpenSSL and see if that fixes the problem.
Or you could rebuild Subversion to use serf and use that instead of
neon.  Or perhaps the 3rd party Subversion binaries use OpenSSL and/or
have serf support.

Debugging SSL is hard.  I don't really know what to suggest.  Perhaps
build a debug version of GnuTLS and use gdb to stop at the point the
error is raised and examine the decoded data that is causing the
