You may be running into the problem I saw (and fixed with the hopefully
soon to be released 1.6.8) where each svn:external in an update would
open and not correctly close the network connection until the update
finished. This would cause Windows XP to disallow creation of new
network connections because of the large number of open connections
on the client. We had thousands of externals and when you would try
and do an update you would get weird "can not connect to server" errors.
