Merge with --ignore-ancestry is extremely slow

Hello. I'm trying to mergee two branches that were imported from CVS, so I'm using --ignore-ancestry. The merge works correctly, but it takes about 50 minutes. Is this normal? Is there a faster alternative?

The project contains about 9000 files. There are only about 12 differences. The client is SVN 1.6.5 on Mac OS 10.6.1. The server is SVN 1.6.5 on Linux, using an https Apache server with path-based authorization turned off.

Sample:

$ cd trunkDir
$ time svn merge --ignore-ancestry trunkURL branchURL

real 49m12.364s
user 0m13.301s
sys 0m12.584s
