I don't think that you are doing anything wrong. The machine is certainly big enough
this usage.

Could you please run that command, and while it's running go to another console and run
  top -b -d 1 -p `pidof fsvs`
to get some information about the memory usage?

If you've got a third shell, you might also do
  strace -tt -p <pid of fsvs>
and send me the last few lines.

What version of FSVS and subversion are you using?


If it's a problem needing a fast solution, you could try to checkout the various
directories - so eg. "bin", "etc", "sbin", "usr" etc. instead of "/"; the clean up the
wrong working copies, and do a "sync-repos" ... but I wouldn't advise that, it's too
much work. And your checkout should simply work!

It's possible that this is an easy bug, and you might get a patch soon ...


Regards,

Phil
