It's possible you're running out of temp space on your server, or
Apache is limiting the size of the commit - I don't think it's
Subversion directly limiting you here. Look for a LimitRequestBody
directive in your Apache configuration and bump the size up, or if you
don't have the directive add it with a limit higher than 4GiB.

Is your server 32-bit or 64-bit? If 64-bit, are Apache & the
Subversion modules compiled for 32-bit or 64-bit? If it's all 32-bit,
I wonder if that's a factor as well.
