Agree with Bob 100%. This is absolutely the case. I have tested this on
a dual-boot machine under as near identical conditions as possible (as
part of an internal activity to get our corporate anti-virus solution

NTFS filesystem + anti-virus software turned on, SVN 1.6.x, creating a
large WC from scratch (~5GB) with ~35K files, Windows XP SP2 took 5
times longer than Linux Fedora 11 (ext3 FS I think) to create the WC.

By tweaking the anti-virus stuff and disabling indexing and such, it was
possible to improve this on Windows a bit. But still, Linux was 3 times
faster on the same hardware than Windows and there is nothing to be done
about it until svn 1.7 hopefully improves things.

It is not a TSVN issue.
