- Please define "very slowly". Several seconds/minutes/hours?
- How big is your working copy KB/MB/GB/TB?
- Is your WC on a network drive?

If you use explorers two pane view, the icons in the tree do not always
update correcly. This is a problem in explorer and not a TortoiseSVN
problem. The right pane should be correct after a few seconds.

As you probably know, TortoiseSVN uses an icon cache that crawls your
working copies asynchronously. After any greater local operation it may take
several seconds until the cache has recrawled the part of the wc that you
are looking at. You can try to reduce the load on the cache by defining
exclude and include paths on the "settings->overlay icons" page and by
reducing the drive types to the ones you really need.
