Subversion slows down with large number of files?

I'm doing a test migration of our current source control system (~ 2.5 Gb)
to Subversion.

I'm running 1.1.0 RC 3 using the svnserve server on one machine, and use the
svn: protocol on the client machine.

Everything has been working fine until I hit a directory with approx. 10332
files in it (small HTML files, combined total size of 18.2 Mb). This seems
to bog down SVN (or Tortoise SVN 1.1.0 RC2) to an enormous extent. If I use
the command line svn command, it will eat up close to 100% CPU time for 10
minutes or so on a commit. If I use the RepoBrowser and try to expand the
directory with those files, the TortoiseProc will eat up 100% for a long
time. If I try to open or refresh an explorer window, it goes to 100% for a
couple of minutes.

Is this to be expected? Doesn't seem like it should cause such a dramatic
