OK, cvs2svn didn't fail this time, I just ran out of disk space :-(
I've made some space, and started it again. (41000 revs and counting)

This is going to be a real problem for people with large repos, since
the dump-file contains a full copy of every revision of every file,
which is going to be huge.

Perhaps cvs2svn should be checkpointable in some way? Would it be
enough to split the cvs2svn-data.*revs files at suitable places and
run pass 4 & 5 multiple times?
