Actually I now suspect the problem occurs on our side of
the process - not Google's. Our server
is configured with a very small /tmp (tmpfs) space - only
16 Mbytes! If svn is trying to stuff all of the tarball into
this small space, it is bound to fail.

Many applications allow one to define an environment variable
to override the placement of files in /tmp, e.g.

  export TEMP=/anywhere/else

I was not able to determine if this is possible with svn/SVK
or not but I am running another batch job now with this
option to see if my commit will run to completion.

Stay tuned...
