How big is some_file.zip? How big is your total dumpfile? What
version of Subversion are you running? Show us the exact svnadmin
command you ran. What operating system are you on? If Unix-like,
show us the output of 'df -s'.

See http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/BUGS for more hints.

By the way, have you Googled for the error?
