I'm not sure I ever saw SVNPoller wedge itself after only a week, but
occasionally (after several months?) I would see SVN connections to
alioth.debian.org stay open long past the poll interval. (Usually this
was when Alioth was heavily loaded, so I would just restart the poller
later.) Eventually we moved to Git, and switched to a push model, so I
never had enough information for a complete bug report.

There is some good background information here:
