Check the memory use on the server while you're committing. If you're
not using the latest Subversion on the server, then you might hit a bug
(fixed in the latest version) where a memory leak could make the server
process consume a huge amount of memory and then simply fail if no
memory is available anymore.

Since this is a server problem, you might have more luck asking for help
on the Subversion mailing list.

Please don't do that again. The first few lines and the last ones would
have been enough. Or at least zip the output so the mail doesn't get
that big.
