1. What version of the client are you running?
2. What encoding _are_ your file names in? (Do you have any names that
   aren't ASCII?)
3. Could you attempt to work out what file is causing the problem?
   If you have a large tree, perhaps you could run 'svn st' for different
   subtrees and narrow down the problem that way?

svn is using 362MB of mappings.

You appear to have 8GB of swap. I don't think svn is running out
of memory. Check /proc/swaps if you want to see how much swap space
you're using.
