Hello Stefan,

Does Subversion only transfer diffs with binary files also? I was
under the impression it did not but only for textual files. But either
way, the 341MB file has never been in the repository before, so no
previous version to diffs to and is already highly compressed
(compressed using the best of deflate, PPMd, LMZA at highest setting
each), no way the server could have compressed it down from 341MB to
15MB.
BTW: The server/check-in is running via svn+ssh.

If there is interest, I can check if I can consistently reproduce this
and file a more detailed bug report.

Ben
