hot-backup.py failed: Can't copy '/var/local/repositories/X' to '/var/local/backups/Y': File too large

Our weekly backup script began failing last night for an unknown reason. It
had worked for several months previous to this failure. Possibly of note is
that we had a power outtage over the weekend, which may or may not have
coincided with the problem.

The actual error message is:
Backing up repository to '/var/local/backups/repo-727'...
svn: Can't copy '/var/local/repositories/repo/db/strings' to
'/var/local/backups/repo-727/db/strings.tmp': File too large

Any ideas? Thanks for your [anticipated] help.
