Subject Merge Failing
Date Wed, 12 Jan 2011 20:22:48 GMT
Sorry if anyone gets this twice - I originally mailed to users at
subversion dot tigris dot org on the advice of somebody, but when I
actually went to the site it suggested this mailing list.


I am attempting to merge the project trunk into a branch but after
nearly 10 minutes it fails with the error message:


Runtime Error!

Program C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseProc.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual


I have also had at times some errors about running out of memory and the
Task Manager backs this up as I can see the memory usage climbing and
the computer grinds to a crawl until the merge crashes.


I have now tried:

1.                      Merging using TortoiseSVN windows interface 

2.                      Merging via command line using both VisualSVN
and SilkSVN.  All fail with the same error - out of memory.  This would
indicate to me that there is a problem with svn itself.  

3.                      Merging a single revision to attempt to minimize
the number of changes but it still fails.

4.                      Merging a single folder containing less than 100
items - it worked!  Problem is that I have 150 or so folders and around
5,000 objects so I can't manually merge each one.


Thanks in advance
