I think that it is an operating system limitation. Berkeley DB is used
in Subversions, and it documents a file limit size as follows:

The maximum file size is 2^32 * page_size where the minimum page size is
512 bytes. So the minimum maximum file size is 2 Terabytes. Your file
system or kernel may be a limitation, however.

Does anyone know the maximum file size on Linux kernel 2.4.x?
