if you do a 'touch' to every file you get a similar effect.
the timestamps in the entries file never get updated,
so svn status does a full compare on every file, every time
(even more annoying with TSVN).

and the problem is neither update nor commit seem to fully restore
the original speed. (and update/commit would also require
server access which you probably don't have when you bothered
to put it on a memory stick in the first place.)

:)
c.a.t.
