Because the filesystem you're using doesn't allow a single file to be that big
(around 16GB)... don't know where the limit is since I don't know what
filesystem you're using, but a lot of filesystems don't allow files bigger
than 2 GB, AFAIK.

The problem here is that SubVersion stores revision changes in a single file.
So if you do an import of 16GB, SubVersion tries to generate a file with
about 16 GB in it.

You might work around the problem by importing a small part (<2GB) and then
add new data, <2GB a time.

The alternative would be to reformat your partition with a filesystem that
allows bigger file sizes, but I think that's too much effort ;-)
