Just a guess,

but did you clear the BDB transaction logs? The command

        svnadmin --list-unused-dblogs REPO

gives you a list with files that can safely be deleted (e.g. by piping
its output into "xargs rm").

I guess that for certain file types a 2:1 compression with subversion is
certainly possible - so I wouldn't wonder about the FSFS repositories'
size being half the size of the original CVS repo (except if you store
lots of binary, hard-to-compress data).

The BDB repo being roughly double the size of the FSFS is a strong hint
that you simply haven't cleared the logs (yet).
