There is a limitation with APR 0.9 with files greater than 2GB.
So exceptionally large commits with fsfs backends can hit this
limit. See
and others.

There are several workarounds, recompile with APR 0.10 or
break up a large commit into several.

The bdb backend is stable, it just has specific requirements of
the filesystem that when not satisfied cause this behavior. If
those conditions are satisfied there are no problems, and many
are using the bdb backend without difficulty.
