To me, 19 minute checkout time doesn't sound to bad for that number of
files/directories. What is the size of the working copy after a checkout?

As for deleting a file in the project root being slow, I think that is
unrelated to Subversion. If you're using an NTFS filesystem, then be
aware that deletes are horrendously slow on NTFS.
