You got the F5 right, but Ctrl-F5 refreshes all directories below the
selected one, not just the immediate children. But they don't
automatically expand in the treeview.

Not really. F5 (and when the repobrowser starts up) first fetches the
all the locking information for the whole repository. So it is a little
bit slower than before.

As it did before.

It did that before. But there's also some issue in how Subversion
handles the DAV protocol in the case of svn_client_ls (which is what the
repobrowser uses). There's a *lot* of data transferred which isn't
actually used (search the Subversion mailing list for a big thread about
this). And that's something TSVN can't do anything about.
