I tried my old laptop and it is indeed much slower. As far as I can
tell there are interactions with the way the OS buffers and flushes
its disk cache. Things are much faster if the unlocking can complete
before the locking gets flushed, although I think there is still
directory data that needs to get written. It may well depend on which
filesystem is being used, my laptop uses ext3 and my workstation uses
reiserfs.

That will mean a additional line in the output, and the way I use
Subversion it will mean that I get a "please wait" message immediately
before the command exits. Is this new output really necessary? It's
not really an improvement in every case.
