file size limit reached error?

So as I'm importing my code base, I get a "File size limit reached"
error. This is with the 1.1rc2 code; BDB based, no server, repository
is on my machine (hey, I'm only prototyping for now. :-)

Searching for large files in my svnroot I find:

$ ll `find . -size +100000k -print`
-rw-r--r-- 1 kbrannen users 2147483647 Aug 26 16:49
-rw-r--r-- 1 kbrannen users 2147483647 Aug 31 13:05

OK so their at the magic 2G-1 limit. So what? I create "large files"
all the time; in fact, I just deleted an 8G file the other day. So I
know my file system will handle it. This is on a Suse 9.0 Linux system
if it matters.

BTW, the partition still has 13.6G free, so I have room. The code base
takes up 5.5G on disk.

Any thoughts, helps, and/or hints? Does this mean I'll have to use FSFS
instead of BDB?
