I have occasionally done a checked of out a largish although not GB size
repo and and plenty of small checkouts but never encountered the problem
you both describe. I use Computer Associate's Vet antivirus which never
seems to intrude into the process. If you are using something different
and trust the repo contents then consider disabling it during the
checkout and see if the problem persists. I usually run with the latest
nightly to help exercise it for Stefan. (although I don't have a list of
checks set out).
I'm not saying there isn't a problem. Just looking at factors.
