Re: svn merge fails "Out of memory - terminating application." or Tortoise runtime error

Same error for command line. I also tried svn -r X:Y and URL_at_X
URL_at_Ymerge types with and without the "--igonre-ancestry" option. all
after the client took 2gb of ram and ran out.

Here's the thing... I imported from MKS with a modified version of the
Polarion importer. It created my branches by re-adding most of the files.
It looks like the initial branch creation for each branch and tag was doing
by many many adds. Subsequent modifications were done via svn cp in some

So, I have branches that are unrelated to the trunk and rather large. I
figured out a workaround... Break the merge up by space...

I tried breaking it up by time (using fewere revisions) but since I have
10,000+ files added, the client croaked. If I stepped two levels down into
the tree and tried merging from that location it worked. So, I can segment
the merge by directory and it seems to work.

Still, my import is faulty so I'm going to need to remake my repository any
way since we haven't started using it. It seems that my journey from MKS to
SVN is far more painful than my journey from CVS to SVN.
