Seems that this was caused by a problem with MTU!

I've changed my broadband router to use an MTU of 1400, and this seems to have
solved the problem. It might be related to MTU discovery, although I'm not
sure at the moment.

In the end it turned out not to be subversion related.

p.s. i still think that svn could use a timeout error message rather than just
hanging.
