What antivirus software are you running on the client? Can you temporarily
uninstall it (disabling may not be enough) and rerun the test?

The reason I ask is that the hooks that AV software use on Win32 platforms are
very deep into the system. These callbacks have an almost pathelogical effect
on software which creates lots of temporary files then renames them (exactly
what Subversion and for that matter CVSNT both do). Disabling the AV software
merely makes the callbacks return immediately, but still leaves the callback
hooks in place, thus still slowing down the file access.
