How large is this project really and with how much RAM is your server
equipped? Maybe an increasing swap file is your real problem? Normally
SVN saves it's data only in the working directory with it's own .svn/tmp
folder or in the transactions folders of the repository somewhere on E
in your case. I don't think it uses the users temp folder, but I might
be wrong.

Not committed transactions, like in the middle of your import process,
can be deleted by svnadmin without leaving rubbish data. If your
aborted import is the only data, you could even just delete and
recreate the whole repository.

I think it does by default.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
