It doesn't sound like a memory consumption problem, but the only thing
in the issue tracker that sounds at all similar is "svnsync runs out of
memory syncing mythtv repository"
<http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3478>. Could you
watch the memory consumption and see if your issue looks at all similar
to this issue?

And please show us the exact output when it does "crash", several
examples if they're varying.

Can you try to narrow it down to a reproducible test case, perhaps by
creating a test repository that contains only a check-in of your big
file and syncing that?
