Svnsync failure on large revision

I've been using svnsync to copy a large-ish repository between two
machines. I've discovered that svnsync can occasionally hit a revision
that it can't deal with, in which case it quits with the message

svnsync: REPORT request failed on 'http://src-server/svn/repo'
svnsync: REPORT of 'http://src-server/svn/repo': 200 OK

In this case, the distinguishing feature of the revision appears to be
that it was seven gigabytes in size - for now, I'm assuming that's what
causes the failure. (Using SVN 1.4.3, Apache 2.0.59 on Windows 2003.)

To work around it, I used 'svnadmin dump' and 'svnadmin load' to copy
the troublesome revision manually. Then I incremented the
'svn:sync-last-merged-rev' revprop on revision 0 of the destination
repository, before resuming svnsync. So far this seems to be working,
but I'm worried that I've missed some subtle aspect of this which will
cause the repository mirroring to be out-of-sync somehow. Is this kind
of hacking around with svnsync and svnsync revprops acceptable, or does
it break things?
