svn diff crashes on a large text file

We have a repos which contains a 600mb+ sql script. At one point this file
gets deleted. If we do a svn diff on that particular rev, svn crashes.

The diff is executed via the file:/// protocol. svn version is 1.2.3 on a
Windows 2003 machine with 3gb of ram of which > 1.5gb is available before
starting the diff. When we add the --no-diff-deleted it works. At the moment
off the crash, svn uses > 1gb of ram. There is plenty (10gb+) of space on
the temp drive.

Any pointers of how we can overcome this? I would think svn would use the
temp drive for performing large file operations?

Merg
