Stefan, that comment was added based on a report from Blair, based on
a root cause analysis from Peter Lundblad:


The original report doesn't include the level of detail you want.

Have you checked what SVN_KEYWORD_MAX_LEN is #define'd to across your
builds on those platforms? If nothing looks suspect, try strace'ing
the load operation highlighted above.
