Very large files confuse update

Hi all,

I have a code repository in subversion, that works fine.

When I run the code it generates a number of output files, which are included
in svn:ignore. It appears this is working -- I can manually create any file
in this list and it is ignored.

However the files my code generates are very big, and they kill svn update.
It seems subversion is stating all files regardless of svn:ignore and
crashing on files over about 4G. Here is the strace output...

lstat64("./out", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=31240, ...}) = 0
lstat64("./raw", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=696, ...}) = 0
lstat64("./.svn", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=384, ...}) = 0
lstat64("./corpus.oneline", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=5624293929, ...}) =
gettimeofday({1075161742, 614860}, NULL) = 0
select(0, NULL, NULL, NULL, {0, 485140}) = 0 (Timeout)
write(2, "svn: Can\'t read directory \'\': Pa"..., 85) = 85
munmap(0x4072c000, 135168) = 0

So to reiterate, moving corpus.oneline out of the repository will avoid the

I've tested three different versons of subversion: 0.33 (from my distro), 0.37
(r8509) and 0.37 checked out from your repository about 12:00 today. They
all have the same behaviour.
