Repository getting too big

Message The repository on my server is growing much faster than expected.

The culprit is in db/txn-protodevs underneath the subversion repository. It's grown to 98GB!

With every revision (on a daily backup), there's a file created there that is exactly 1GB even though the backup fails!!!:

-rw-r--r-- 1 svnbackup svnbackup 1048576000 2010-01-14 08:00 68-4g.rev
-rw-r--r-- 1 svnbackup svnbackup 0 2010-01-14 07:38 68-4g.rev-lock

The earliest of these files goes back to 2009-10-14

On the machine which is being backed up:

#fsvs log
r68 | svnbackup | 2009-10-13T06:35:54.093739Z | 1 line

  Daily backup

So it looks like I dumped 20 GB of photos onto the server, and forgot to add an exception to the ignore list.

I don't understand why these files would be created and kept on a failed transaction. Is this a bug in subversion?
