[TSVN] slow on large repositories

I think this has been reported before.
I imported a large vendor branch into our subversion project
repository. It is, in fact, the NetBeans platform sources, which
contains lot of files in a deep directory structure. I checked it out to
my Windows pc using TortoiseSVN 1.0.8, which is a great tool, BTW.
However, when I open the NetBeans directory with the Explorer, it takes
several minutes to come back. That is, the Explorer is frozen during
that time and disk is in full activity. When it comes back, things seem
to work normally for while. I can browse subfolders, etc. But once in a
while, when I'm using the Explorer on these directories, the same thing
happens again when I click on one of the top directories.

It seems to me, that TortoiseSVN, recurses the whole directory structure
when showing the status of a folder. Small projects work well, but these
large projects with hundreds of files is a pain to work with. Isn't it
possible to restrict the status to the current folder and not go down
all the subfolders also recursively?
At least, some per folder option will be nice. Is this a problem of the
subversion itself or TortoiseSVN?
