No, I'm REALLY sure it doesn't. See the following:

mark@kilroy D:\Code\Databases\xxx\PostInstall
$ dir "03 InsertICD9Codes.sql"
  Volume in drive D has no label.
  Volume Serial Number is 880F-66D0

  Directory of D:\Code\Databases\xxx\PostInstall

12/09/2004 02:16 PM 1,129,669 03 InsertICD9Codes.sql
                1 File(s) 1,129,669 bytes
                0 Dir(s) 9,213,755,392 bytes free

mark@kilroy D:\Code\Databases\xxx\PostInstall
$ type "03 InsertICD9Codes.sql" > nul

mark@kilroy D:\Code\Databases\xxx\PostInstall
$ type "03 InsertICD9Codes.sql" > output.txt

mark@kilroy D:\Code\Databases\xxx\PostInstall
$ fc "03 InsertICD9Codes.sql" output.txt
Comparing files 03 InsertICD9Codes.sql and OUTPUT.TXT
FC: no differences encountered

mark@kilroy D:\Code\Databases\xxx\PostInstall

This is on Windows XP SP2. The "cat" from SFU also has no trouble with
redirecting arbitrarily large output. This must be some oddity in the
way svn is handling things.

Note that this error isn't referring to main memory, or virtual memory,
but probably to the Non Paged Pool, though it seems it can also be seen
when the registry fills up.
