Thank you for your input Ben.
We will get with our System Admin and see what is going there.

That is an OS error.  Subversion is providing you the "Cannot allocate memory"
message as a convenience, it's not producing the error.

Looking at the code I'd bet that fork() is returning ENOMEM on your system.

Add more memory to the system or figure out why the kernel doesn't think it has enough memory.
 Might want to check your configured ulimits as well.
