Hi Kyle,

thanks for the report. This is probably SVN issue 1964 and depends only
on the size of your commit (not the repository size). Since I perform huge

merges (~10k files) myself every once in a while, this hit me ever since:
My record is 1.85 GB with 32 bit. With 64 bit, you can just throw enough
memory at it.

Currently, you have at least 4 options:

* split your commits and use comments to mark them as "partial"
* find a way to reduce the number of individual adds
  (that seems to be the limiting factor)
* use the 64 bit version (available for XP64 only)
* fix issue 1964
