a file with size 264901826 bytes (don’t ask!!) causes “svn list -vH URL-OF-FILE-IN-REPO” (using Subversion 1.14) to abort with
svn: subversion/svn/filesize.c:93: format_size: Assertion `absolute_human_readable_size < 1000.0' failed.
on GNU/Linux. As it turns out, get_base2_unit_file_size() in subversion/svn/filesize.c produces nonsense. Nonsense as in “humbug for files larger than 1 MB”. My guess would be that this is what the author was aiming for: (assuming the result is supposed to have roughly two decimals)
