massive memory use when updating big working copies

On the TSVN list, someone reported a massive memory use when updating a
rather big working copy. The memory use exceeded 1.6GB in that
particular case.

We were able to reproduce this with the svn client (built from r26405 of
the Subversion trunk). The memory use rises rapidly at the very end of
an update, between the last file entry shown and the 'finished' line.
So this is definitely a problem in the svn library.

I'm attaching two screenshots I got from this user, one showing the
memory use of TSVN (which stays open until the user closes it) and the
other one showing the memory use of svn.exe (which finishes
automatically at the end of the update).
