With my old WinXP laptop I can't really spare 1 GB of ram :-) (I only
have 3.3 available).

But, increasing it to 256MB (and using cleanup) did help: started the
testsuite yesterday evening, and haven't seen any failures (this
morning, the ra_serf tests were still running, but ra_local and ra_svn
were finished ... no failures).

Problem solved it seems.

Or do we have to worry about the failure modes of svn (or of the
testsuite) when the disk is full?
