The logfile *set* (more than one logfile) will grow without bounds,
but a particular logfile should only grow to about 1 Mb (as the result
of Subversion's custom configuration of Berkeley DB). Generally, once
a logfile reaches the 1Mb point, Berkeley will start a new logfile.
It is only when Berkeley has finished using a logfile (meaning it has
begun a new one) that list-unused-logfiles will display it. You will
always have at least one logfile in use at any given time.
