I didn't realize you had deprecated -kb. Certainly there are a lot of legacy files stored on servers that used the blob approach. If John isn't running 2.5.4 yet, or even if he is but the file dates back many revisions (especially if they were committed with 2.5.3) then large files on the server could be his problem. And even with binary differencing (-kB), you will eventually exceed the server's memory capability, at least with 2.5.3. I haven't tried 2.5.4 yet. chuck
