Yes, it is correct. If it shows 400MB instead of 40MB which you expect,
then the additional traffic comes from authentication. I suspect you're
using SSPI authentication - that's known to be excessive if you don't
configure it to cache:

SSPIPerRequestAuth on

this will make SSPI only require new authentication for every request,
not every datapacket sent.

That's a bug in the Subversion library:
http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/BrowseList?list=dev&by=thread&from=669784

I've implemented a workaround for this bug already, but of course it's a
workaround and there are situations where it won't help. You can try a
nightly build if you like.
