It's fine to keep a working copy on a network drive.

But the subversion client creates/manipulates/copies/moves dozens of
tiny little administrative files within the .svn/ directory during a
checkout. I'm guessing you have horrible latency between your local
computer and the remote machine. Every time a tiny .svn/ file is
accessed, there's probably a huge delay in the network
request/response. Zillions of network turnarounds.
