That is disappointing to hear. We actually think performance is
substantially improved across the board. We have significantly
improved the cache management and eliminated virtually all unnecessary
refreshes and fetches. And of course SVN 1.7 is generally faster too.

There have been changes made in the last couple release related to
hiding the duplicates in this scenario. Maybe the Eclipse calls that
entails cause additional work to be done?

Can you elaborate?

We spent significant time considering that option and ruled it out.

Your working copy is not by chance stored on a network mount is it?
That is one area where SVN 1.7 has some significant performance
