In order to help you we need to know a lot more about your setup. So here it

- Which OS are you running the conversion on? (Windows presumably)
- Which OS do you store your repository on?
- Which access method does the conversion script use? (http, svn, file,
'svnadmin load', ...)
- Where is your repository stored?
- Is that an NFS or other network-type drive?

Well, that should give us a first impression.
