I don't know the exact limitation of the database size, but as an
example, Gustavo Niemeyer from Conectiva Linux writes:

  Since then, 5 complete Conectiva Linux distributions were committed
  into the repository, and every single update in the distribution is
  done using Subversion. We've already surpassed 50000 revisions, in a
  30GB repository.

If your file system doesn't support files bigger than 2 Gb, you need to
change your fs to one that does, for example ext3 or ReiserFS. I
experimented on a ext2 file system to see if the database would crash
into the 2 Gb limit, and you bet it did. db errors all over the place.
