Well, there is some extra overhead of course so slow downs should be a
given. I mean, there is the network communication from the Subversion
server to the directory server, there is the binding to the directory
server and then there is the query required to authenticate the user.
It is unavoidable but in most cases, it's better than tolerable.

Doesn't get much easier than this:

Sorry to hear that. With this being the case, I'm sure you're
connecting to Active Directory. Make sure to read the part about
using a Global Catalog.
