Just to clarify .. svnsync does NOT use dump files to sync revisions. It
essentially replays the same set of requests that the client would have
made when it did the original commit. It is specifically designed so that
it can handle failures and be re-run. Of course it can continually fail for
the same reason. My guess is that since this is such a large transaction a
timeout is happening somewhere between the svnsync (client) and your server.

I realize that does not help a lot but it does mean you might be able to
tune your server or client and get it to work and sync this revision.
