        Subject: "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?
