Depending on which command you're using or which dialog, TSVN has to do
some checks before it can execute the command you want. For example,
when you update, TSVN first asks the repo what the HEAD revision is,
then updates *all* selected targets to that exact revision (the svn
client would update all items to HEAD, which means if there's a commit
in between the updates, your working copy would not be in a consistent
state). Or in the repo browser, it has to check whether the URL is a
file or a folder, what the HEAD revision is, what the repository root
url is, ...
