I have TSVN 1.6.9 running on Windows 7 32bit without any problems. I'm not checking out from code.google.com, but it is behaving as expected.

As to your question about the checkout folder being empty, that tells me that subversion is doing its job. It is supposed to perform its work atomically. That means a checkin or checkout is all or nothing. If it fails for any reason, you have to fix the reason before you can try again.

Now, are you certain that the 1.3GB checkout is not a typo? I would be suspicious if 1.3GB only takes a few seconds on any platform. You must have something like OC-3 or higher connection speed to suck that much data that fast. With a saturated 20mbit pipe it would take over 9 minutes to pull 1.3GB of information, and that's without handshaking and negotiating for different files.

That said, there are a number of things that can cause slowness that doesn't have anything to do with the client. Perhaps you got switched from one server to another in the middle of the checkout (Google has to do load balancing). Perhaps there was a misconfiguration somewhere. It happens. It's really not a lot to go on right now. All the firewalls are good and the DNS server is accessible and working well? The repository isn't using a non-standard port are they?

I'm just thinking of things where Windows 7 might have tightened control that can affect you.
