I do also find the fact that I have to type the checkout directory every
time very annoying. Some months ago I suggested that TSVN could deduce a
checkout directory path by combining a parent path (a setting made by
the user per repository) with the current relative path in the
repository. The edit box in the checkout (and export) dialog should be
filled with that deduced path by default.
