svnadmin: Can't write to stream: File too large

Hi,

ive got a large repository (using svn version 1.5.1 r32289) and want to dump
the repository.
Dumping with svnadmin dump $repo > dumpfile does result in:

svnadmin: Can't write to stream: File too large

The file at this time is around 17 GiB in size.
The only workaround found at the moment is to bzip or gzip things via a pipe.

But why i got this error and what is the solution - thought svn should support
such big dump files, shouldn't it?

thx

Torsten
