No surprise... 'svn st -u' is exactly the same as 'svn up'. It's just
a dry-run. Both commands are requesting an update from the server.

The problem isn't the size of of the working copy on disk. The
problem is the *number* of different working revisions. The server
has to build a temporary tree (mirror) of the working copy. Each
mixed-revision file must be explicitly linked into mirror before it
can begin sending back a tree comparison... and that's what's taking
the server so long.

For now, all you can do is increase the http timeout of your svn
client in ~/.subversion/servers.
