We regularly have working copies in the 25k file/500MB range, and have
never had problems. Other people have much larger repositories. I
don't think your issue is related to any inherent scaling issue in

How do they fail? What is the error message? Does it always fail at
the same point, on the same file?

A cleanup error message has to do with a broken working copy and isn't
related to the repository itself. Did the svn checkout actually crash?
  Unless it crashed hard I don't think it should ever leave the working
copy in a broken state. But then unless you're using 1.4.2 client maybe
it is a bug that's already been fixed.

What OS versions on server and client?
What version of svn are you running on the server and client? Did you
build them yourself or are they the stock/distro binaries?
What server type (svnserve or apache)? What backend (fsfs or bdb)?
