I took note of revision number and went to $REPO/db/revs/<K-rev>/rev-number/ and checked the size of the revision. It was 1 mega byte. That sounds fishy. Any ideas on what might be wrong here. My repo is about 350GB in size with about 600,000 revisions.
Are there a lot of files in a single directory? The file/directory structure is stored in each revision. (Not sure if that's the file/directory structure of everything or just of the directories to which the commit applies.)
