Memory usage on server side with svnserve

I am trying to check in a directory that has just under 6,000 files (98% are
new, with the rest of the 2% with changes). The total size of the directory
is around 5 megabytes. (lots and lots of small XML files).

As the commit happens the svnserve process eats up the ram until I get
swap_pager_getswapspace: failed on the console and the client connection
dies.

I copied over the directory to the FreeBSD machine and committed the files
(over file:// instead of svn://) and the process memory usage was nowhere
near as aggressive as svnserve. I know that if I throw more RAM (and/or swap
space) at this it will go away (until I have to commit something larger than
I have memory for.)

I was wondering if there was some memory that could be deallocated that is
not somewhere.

Some background:
svnserve 1.0.1 (built from port system) running on FreeBSD 4.9, 512 megs ram
(only a ~200 meg swap drive). Client: win32 1.0.0
