Yes. I've tried it on Ubuntu 12.08 (1.8 subversion was compiled from
downloaded sources) and Windows XP Pro, at work... not with chromium
svn though. We have repository with some huge revisions in it,
although we have no problems dealing with it in normal everyday work
(checkout, log, blame, commit). I faced this trap trying to mirror it.
It is not an "address space fragmentation" because pages are committed
not just reserved, and it is very unlikely to be related to memory
manager at all because memory is deallocated after every successfully
downloaded revision.

On transmitting data stage. During the commit almost no additional
memory is allocated.
