Re: 2 MB file kills repository?

Even if this turns out to be a subclipse problem, the core svn
distribution is what is running the server and it shouldn't let a
broken client get the repository into a state requiring svnadmin
recover should it?

If it did then you'd have a nice DOS attack against other svn users.
