Bloated rev file.

Whenever I commit changes on certain file a bloated commit file is
created on the db/revs directory. I say bloated because the committed
file contains ASCII text and the diff wrt previous commit is just a
few short lines (typically 10 lines totalling approx 200 chars). The
committed file size is 44 KB and the corresponding rev file is 38
KB. On a repository of about 800 files, this is the only file that
shows the problem. As this file is changed often, a large part of the
repository size is due to this problem.

The only reason I can think about is that the original commit could
have UNIX line endings and successive commits contains DOS line
endings. I would expect a somewhat large rev file when the file
changed from UNIX to DOS line endings, but once the conversion was
committed, I expect a rev file size proportional to the changes
relative to previous commit.
