svn merge operation extremely slow

I've encountered what I think is a problem with subversion, but I'm not
completely sure (and according to the online instructions I should bring it
up here prior to filing a bug).

Basically, we're trying to merge a rather large collection of fixes back in
our trunk. I check out a fresh copy of the trunk, then use the merge
syntax:
svn merge https://path/to/my/branch .

This generally churns along just fine, but we occasionally get hung up on
medium sized binary files where the svn client jumps to 100% cpu usage and
sits on it for 3+ hours before moving on to the next file. These files are
anywhere from 3-10MB in size, so not ridiculously huge. We generally have
these files marked as octet stream, but changing to text did not help the
situation when we tried that.

I did find an old forum discussion about a potential issue that could be
related. I was wondering if this was ever addressed and could it still be
the same problem. Link is here:

I'm using svn client 1.6.12. I looked at the online change log up through
the 1.7 alphas and didn't see any bug fixes that sounded relevant.

Any help is appreciated! I'm sure we're not the only team experiencing this
issue.

Thanks much,

Kyle
