Slow operation after large import

From: Paul Gregory <PGregory_at_superscape.com>

The company I work for are considering switching to Subversion for our
version control. While evaluating it, I have installed it on a low power
Linux machine (P4 450MHz) and am running some tests with one of our current
project repositories.

I imported a copy of the repository from a clean checkout of our current VC
system, and all went well. However, while trying out some merging and basic
operations I noticed that selecting the "Show Log" option in TortoiseSVN, it
just seemed to lockup. I tried from the command line and it was fine, until
I realised that TortoiseSVN shows the log information, presumably by doing a
"svn log -v". Sure enough, running this on the command line, locally on the
Linux machine, or remotely via svn:// results in a huge delay while it
constructs the list of files imported at revision 1.

First of all is this expected? The repository consists of some 16,000 files.
If not, can anyone point me at some way to determine the cause of the delay
in my installation? Secondly, if it is to be expected, is there any way to
avoid it? As it stands the "Show log" feature of Tortoise is of no use to us
like this, but it is an important feature we would need to use.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers
