I would so *love* to reproduce this. Shipping 3 gigs to us is
probably overkill, though. Can you reproduce this on some subdir of
your repository? (And, what does your free disk space look like when
cvs2svn hangs? Are you running out of space on that partition?)

Let's see if we can narrow this down to either something about the
data, or at least to the minimal data size needed to stimulate the bug
(if it is caused by size).

Thanks for reporting,
