Perhaps to you it is, but to those that donate their time on this mail list to help others, it really isn't. It seems to me that waiting an extra 22 seconds solves your problem. I'm not sure how much quicker it could be solved.

That said, several people have done benchmarks on Linux vs Windows on the SAME exact hardware and shown that Linux is just faster at most client side operations that do a lot of disk access. So, there really is no solution for this except improving your hard ware. Perhaps an SSD. Assuming you have disabled any Antivirus scan and indexing in windows on the folder you are doing your svn work in... there's not really much more to do.

Supposedly svn 1.7's new working copy storage is supposed to bring windows and linux perf into parity, improving perf on both OSes. But, that is probably still 6+ months out from what I see following the svn dev mail list.
