Subversion 1.7 moved from having .svn directories in each directory and flat
file entries files to maintain the state of the working copy to using a single
.svn directory at the root of the working copy and a sqlite database.

The error you're getting is because the working copy database file
(myThing/.svn/wc.db in your case) is larger than 2GB.  Your Windows server may
not support files over 2GB.

You might try adding the lfs flag to the mount options when you mount it to
tell Linux to enable large file support on the mount.

I'm not personally familiar enough with the specifics of what needs to be done
on the Windows side to support this or which versions of Windows support it to
help you there.

All that said, if you have that large of a working copy database, I doubt
you're going to have very good performance using the working copy over a
network share.
