Interestingly, I've been seeing the same while working with Wichert
Akkerman from Debian to get a large (1GB) Subversion repository set
up that I've been maintaining previously.

We've been seeing many locking-related problems. The symtomps I've
noticed are very slow checkouts (say, one file every two minutes
instead of half a dozen per second) and completely blocked updates,
etc. Restarting Apache seems to temporarily fix things.

stracing the stuck process, be it apache or svnserve, shows it doing
one select after another, once per second, with no other activity.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of variables. The repository is on an
IA64 machine; it's running Debian woody; and the last time I had it up
on my system was under Subversion 0.20. So it's hard to point to any
one thing as the smoking gun. We have more of a dense cloud of smoke.
