That's something I can't fix in TSVN. The Subversion library doesn't
provide the kind of information you want.
The progress bar currently shows the amount of data transferred for
every file individually, and only for http/https transfers. That's
because *I* sent a patch for this to the Subversion guys. Since I don't
know the internals as well as others of Subversion, I asked them to
improve this and implement it for the other protocols too.
Actually, I asked for this way before Subversion 1.0 came out, see issue
#901 in the Subversion tracker about this.

Please, please, please!
Go to the Subversion dev list and shout, cry, swear, stomp, ... - just
do anything you can to maybe finally convince them to do something about it!
