I don't see how a timeout provides anything that a progress counter does not.

Further, a timeout actually potentially *introduces* problems, since
you as a developer have no idea what kind of connection (bandwidth)
that users are going to want to run Subversion over.

Well, just in case it is, try sniffing the svn traffic and have a look-see.
Look for TCP retransmits, there's a good probability that they will
show up if you have a network-related problem.

Gimme a ping off-list if you want a short intro on how to do the above
on <insert system here>.
