I use Nginx as a frontend to Apache with module mod_dav_svn. Apache is responsible to handle Subversion via HTTP and Nginx is responsible for SSL encryption. However, since Nginx version 1.0.9 (bug exists also in 1.0.10) the worker process exits with signal 11 whenever I use Subversion client. Subversion client reports failure with SSL handshake when using OPTIONS method on repository url.
There is no error however, when I use browser, so with GET method.
There is no error if SSL is not used (Nginx is still used as reverse proxy).

Looks very similar to ticket #54. Please try the patch (or the workaround) from there. If it doesn't help, please provide more details (backtrace, config, etc - see

Thank you. The patch from ticket #54 solved the problem.

Note for FreeBSD users:
The patch should be renamed to "patch-src::http::ngx_http_request.c" and placed in "/usr/ports/www/nginx/files"
