I see the opposite on an NFS disk: the single recursive call is 20s and
the multiple non-recursive calls are 33s, so the single call is faster
as expected. It's still 20x slower than a local disk but that will be
because info is still using per-node sqlite transactions.

What do these command show:

$ sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from nodes"
$ sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from nodes where op_depth > 0"
$ sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from actual_node"

Does your working copy have "large" directories, i.e. a directory with a
large number of immediate subdirs/files? (It should be possible to
forumulate an SQL statement that tells me, but my SQL isn't good
