We deliberately don't write them to /tmp, because we want them a) to
be easy to find, and b) not likely to get caught up in the automated
cleaning sweeps that some systems run on /tmp. The principle is "Use
/tmp, or some other system-defined tmp area, for data generated by
Subversion; but use the current directory for data generated by a
human", the rationale being that data generated by a human could be
arbitrarily costly to regenerate.

Is it so big? Just 'svn rm' them from the repository.
