Performance degradation on committing large files

Message Hi,

I've been trying out fsvs (v1.1.0) to backup my laptop to a LaCie
drive. I like fsvs quite a bit.

However, I saw a problem last night that performance is degraded quite
a bit when committing a large number of files. More specifically, I
see performance degrade when the total size of all the files are
larger than about 130M. Furthermore, when trying to commit my home
directory, it died and rolled back the svn transaction at the filesize
limit on my machine (~2GB, but ulimit -f reports 'unlimited').

I realize this is likely a subversion problem (using 1.4.3), but
thought I should ask whether there might be a workaround that I can
use. The workaround I'm using now is to run fsvs commit in batches,
where I commit directories smaller than about 75M.

I would like to request a feature to be able to have fsvs commit an
svn transaction after a given total file size is processed. (Provided
I'm not out to lunch on the above, and doing something egregiously
wrong.)

In all, I have about 36GB of data I'd like to backup (moving to a new
laptop soon--thanks to my employer), but doing this piecemeal is not
quite what I had in mind.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Phil
