svn ubuntu large file size can't check path

From: Eric Swanson <eric.swanson_at_mercyships.org>

I'm new to Subversion. I've got a Subversion server running on an
Ubuntu 6.10 machine. I've been able to create, add, update & commit to
& from the repository with reasonable-sized files both locally on the
server and from two Macs via svn:// protocol.

Now I'm trying to put a few large video files into my repo (the files
are in a working directory on the server). Here is a file listing of
the working directory:

root@carbon:/repo/Working-Copy/Video_Elements# ls -al
total 6236412
drwxr-xr-x 3 ericswanson ericswanson 4096 2007-01-03 08:25 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 ericswanson ericswanson 4096 2007-01-02 17:36 ..
-rwxrwxrwx 1 ericswanson ericswanson 5909947129 2007-01-02 17:56
Backgnd-Full-001.mov
-rwxrwxrwx 1 ericswanson ericswanson 469865476 2007-01-02 17:38 MS_Logo.mov
drwxr-xr-x 7 ericswanson ericswanson 4096 2007-01-03 08:25 .svn

I was able to add & commit the 449MB file "MS_Logo.mov" fine. But I
have not been able to add the 5.6GB file "Backgnd-Full-001.mov". See below:

root@carbon:/repo/Working-Copy/Video_Elements# svn add Backgnd-Full-001.mov
svn: Can't check path 'Backgnd-Full-001.mov'

Note that the repo itself is located at /repo/subversion/, the working
copy is /repo/Working-Copy/ and the file I'm trying to add is in the
working copy directory.

I've searched the svn book and googled, but I'm still at a loss. The
svn error message does not give any reason for the error (such as
permissions or invalid filename).

I'm guessing that I have a file size problem with my svn server setup
since I can add the one file but not the other. Can anyone point me in
the right direction to debug this on Linux/Ubuntu?

Below is my svn --version info.

Thanks,
Eric Swanson
