Client failing in presence of huge files (> 2GB)

Hi.

The svn client stops working correctly when a huge file is present in
the current directory, even if the said file is not managed by svn.

Steps to reproduce:

~/tmp$ svnadmin create repo
~/tmp$ svn co file://$PWD/repo t
~/tmp$ cd t
~/tmp/t$ dd if=/dev/zero of=huge count=1 seek=4M
~/tmp/t$ ls -lh
-rw-r--r-- 1 pcdavid pcdavid 2,1G 2005-06-22 18:43 huge
~/tmp/t$ svn status -v
svn: Can't read directory '.': Partial results are valid but processing
is incomplete

This happens with:
 - svn, version 1.1.1 (r11581) [version included in Ubuntu Hoary]
 - svn, version 1.2.0 (r14790) [locally compiled and installed]

Note that it works OK with a 1G file, or if the file is inside a
directory which is itself not managed by svn.

I don't know if it's relevant, but the underlying filesystem is
ReiserFS3 under Linux 2.6.10.
