`svn commit` -> only partial changeset

Hi there,

I tried to put the entire 2.4.27 linux kernel source [189M] into our
subversion server at work today and it did not commit the entire
changeset.

I expected it to take a while (older machine), maybe even fail - but
definitely *not* commit only a partial changeset.

SVN started the commit, I went and had lunch expecting this to take a
while. I came back and it asked me for my password again, weird but ok
maybe it lost my authentication. It printed some more periods and then
stopped printing them, I guess it was a runaway process.

I checked the repository and the revision number was +1 but SVN and
apache were still running at 100% CPU. I killed both processes and
restarted apache.

I thought that the commit was successful since it was in the repository
(atomic commits!) until I checked it out into another WC, untar'd the
source over it again and then ran `svn status` to see a bunch of files
identified with '?'.

Here are the details.

 * svn 1.1.4 compiled from source on Mandrake 10.1
 * https:// access with apache 2.0.54 from source, but APR was not
   explicitly stated in the configure line, it was found automagically
 * fsfs file system
 * autoprop enabled in client to set native eol markers for .c, .cpp,
 * Older machine PIII, 600Mhz, 516092 kB RAM

The machine is acting as both the client and the server so it is
stressed for both memory and CPU on such a large add and commit.

Chris
