Have you tried these things using the svn command line for comparison?
 We can never be anywhere near as fast as it is, but that at least
establishes a baseline. If you think the command line is slow too, as
an example, there isn't anything that can be done in Subclipse to
speed it up.

During the actual commit/update almost all code is happening in the
SVN libraries (same as command line). Usually the delays that would
happen would be at the end of the process when we have Eclipse refresh
changed resources, which fires builders, updates caches and resource
listeners etc.
