Would you like to explain a little further ... ? There is nothing about
that in the docs.

At some stage, TSVN _has_ got much slower, but I am not sure when it
occurred. My report last week about uninstalling 7-zip was a red
herring. When I rebooted, it went back to being slow again. Not so bad
when the SVN data is in disk cache, but whenever it falls out of the
cache overlay update behaves exactly as the others have described.

There is a subversion bug which causes excessive sub-folder activity
when looking at the WC root folder, and it may or may not be fixed in
SVN 1.1.2 (the official fix is done, but won't be added until 1.2. There
is a patchup fix which may make it into 1.1.2)

But I think the TSVN slow-down has happened independently of that bug,
which has been around since SVN 1.0.
