Ok, good to know. So the right-click-delay isn't a bug, it's by design. TSVN
needs to fetch the status of the parent folder, before showing up the
right-click-popup-menu. Is that right?
Without understanding the whole thing, the rule could be "Don't put too many
files in the root."

That's true. I only noticed the delay and then tried to find the reason.

I totally agree.
