In this case the glitch (if it was a network glitch) was caused by
svnsync itself. System suffer from heavy swapping when svnsync
allocated more than 2Gb of ram, probably 3Gb or so. 32bit version just
can't mirror this repo in theory.

It also populate transaction folder with enormous number of files.
297652 files in single .txn folder is also a good stress test to file
system, network file system specifically. But it is not the cause of a
problem. Memory leak is a problem.
