"Revision file lacks trailing newline" on large import

I'm attempting an import of a tree containing ~27GB of large files (3rd party
libraries, tarballs, etc.) I have a brand new subversion install using HTTPD
2.2.0 + Subversion 1.3.0 built from tarballs on Fedora Core 3. After many
hours of "Adding", towards what seems like the end of the process, the import
command fails with the following error:


svn: MERGE request failed on '/svn/ndrive/trunk'

svn: Revision file lacks trailing newline


Any idea what might be causing this? I had originally tried this on OS X
using HTTPD 2.0.55 but got the same error. I was told that it was because of
a problem in the version of APR that is bundled with 2.0.55 so I then moved
to HTTPD 2.2.0 on the Mac but started getting an error about bucket brigades.
At this point I decided to ditch OS X and moved over to Linux. Now I'm
seeing the newline error again. I was told on IRC that it was a problem with
the commit message I used during the import which I find hard to believe (the
-m message was simply "Initial checkin"). But, just in case, I am running
the import again using $EDITOR for the message instead.


If nobody has any ideas about the cause of this problem can I go ahead and
submit a bug?
