I don't think the error condition is originating in Subversion.
Subversion just sees that it's writing to standard output, which your
shell has arranged to write into a file. It seems more likely that
you are running into a limitation of the underlying file system.
What *nix flavor are you running? What's the file system you're trying
to write the dump file to? "Around 17 GiB" seems like a strange
maximum size. It isn't 17179869184 bytes, perchance?
