"Revision file lacks trailing newline" after a large commit

Whenever I try to commit I get the following error:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Revision file lacks trailing newline

I haven't seen this problem before. The commit previous to that was 5.8GB,
which I suspect has something to do with this. Is there anything I can do
to get around this?

Running "svnadmin verify" reproduces the problem:
* Verified revision 730.
* Verified revision 731.
* Verified revision 732.
* Verified revision 733.
svnadmin: Revision file lacks trailing newline

I'm running SVN v1.3.2 on Linux (Fedora Core 5), using an FSFS repository on

Thanks in advance,
