We now have about 5600 files (~70MB) at Revision 6000+, and there's a delay of about 30s after the final "xxx Bytes transferred in x minute(s) and xx second(s)" appears, even if no data was updated or just a single small file was commited. We use svn, version 1.6.2 on a Suse 10.3 server and TSVN client 1.6.11.
