The obvious question first: you are using a Release build of course?

Concerning profiling, IBM has a 15-days trial edition of Rational
PurifyPlus at their website:
I've never used it (well, not in the last 10 years), but at first sight
it should allow you to profile different builds of svn.

With every release of VS comes a new version of the CRT. I wouldn't be
surprised of some of the improvements it brings are in fact downgrading
performance in the algorithms used in 'svn merge'. While it could be
networking related, it could be slower memory block allocation etc.
How does svn 1.4.6 compare in merge time in VC6 vs VS2008?

I have neither VS2008 nor VC6 here so I can't help you testing.
