Sorry about that. I think people are just quite busy on other things
(like work!) at the moment. We do care really ;-)

You are not the only person to report a problem like this, but it is
sometimes hard to tie down where the delay is happening. I can't answer
the question, but I can ask you for some more details that might help
the others.

1. Does 1.1.2 also read a lot of data from the HD but popup the menu
before the HD finishes reading, or does it not read very much from HD?
Using filemon would help with diagnosing what is happening.

2. TSVN 1.1.3 uses SVN 1.1.3 and TSVN 1.1.2 uses SVN 1.1.2, so the next
question is, do you see any difference when using the 1.1.2 and 1.1.3
command line clients?

Absolutely. The last thing we want is for SVN/TSVN to look bad, so I
hope we can find out what is going on here. Will? Stefan? Any clues? I
had sort of noticed this effect myself, but my repos are much smaller
and my laptop is (seemingly) getting slower by the day, so I thought it
was just me.
