Thanks for the update.

The point about disabling AV software is not that you should do it
permanently but long enough to find out if has any influence on the
problem. It may have none at all. In other cases problems have been
fixed by getting the AV scanner to skip working copies, although your
security police may not like that. It does mean you have to put all
your WCs in one place if you cannot change AV policy yourself.

You might also be able to help with the diagnosis using a tool like
ProcessMonitor from sysinternals to look at resource usage (memory,
handles, cpu, etc.) and see if svn.exe is consuming everything in
