Subject svnadmin: Can't write to stream: File too large
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 13:16:55 GMT

ive got a large repository (using svn version 1.5.1 r32289) and want to dump 
the repository.
Dumping with svnadmin dump $repo > dumpfile does result in:

svnadmin: Can't write to stream: File too large

The file at this time is around 17 GiB in size.
The only workaround found at the moment is to bzip or gzip things via a pipe.

But why i got this error and what is the solution - thought svn should support 
such big dump files, shouldn't it?
