That is a pretty large WC, so doing the status check will be quite slow.
Was it ever faster (on a WC of that size)? Try the SVN command line
client and see how long 'svn status -v' takes from the top level of your WC.

One thing you should try is a cleanup from the top level. If file date
changes but content doesn't, SVN will do a byte-by-byte compare between
the working file and the pristine copy to determine whether the file is
really unchanged. Obviously that is very slow. Cleanup checks those
files and resets the stored timestamp to avoid that problem next time.
You can get that problem if you use 'touch' on your source files to
force a build.
