File too large when attempting an 'svnadmin load'?

I am trying to merge two repositories and have run into an odd problem. I
have had at least one successful test run but now it is failing.

Repository 1 is the target and has ~36,000 revisions in ~16G
Repository 2 is the source and has ~400,000 revisions in ~28G

I'm stuffing the larger into the smaller so that it is rooted correctly
and so that I can filter out some things we don't want (though not much).

The command I'm running:

self=$(basename $0)

svnadmin dump ${SOURCE} 2>${self}-dump.2 |\
   svndumpfilter include /trunk \
                         /tags \
                         /branches \
                         /other/stuff \
                  2>${self}-filter.2 |\
    svnadmin load --parent-dir /TheBusinessUnit/TheSubOrganization ${REPO} \
                  1>${self}-load.1 2>${self}-load.2

After chugging along for about 57 of 60 hours it fails with the following
message in the ${self}-load.2 file. The 60 hour estimate comes from a
previous successful run.

    svnadmin: Can't open
       File too large

There is no file "416843.tmp" though there is a "416843" but that is only
113 bytes:

K 10
V 7
K 8
V 27
K 7
V 18

This is on a Solaris 10 box (sparc, not x86) with tried-and-true
Subversion 1.4.2.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
