I solved the problem of the partial checkouts with the directive "SVNPathAuthz off". Since I do not need per path authorization (per repository is enough for me) this is a good solution for me.

Still mysterious is the speed thing. The download speed is now extremely good (~5MB/s) but the upload speed i really poor (~100-300kb/s). Ideas welcome.
