Looks like it was a wedged repository (phew!). Running "svnadmin
recover" took a really long time (left it overnight), which made things
a bit tense. :-o That's with a 6GB+ repository. Do you expect the
changes in 1.1 will improve performance on this sort of thing? Maybe
switching to the fs-backend (won't have to run recover any more at least)?

So just to double check, there are no (known) limits on repository size,
  other than the hot-backup issue?
