Apache is always slower than svnserve, but in this case it is a specific
performance regression in 1.0.8/1.1.0 that was corrected in 1.0.9/1.1.1.
Also, in your Apache location directive you should add SVNPathAuthz off so
that it looks like this:

<Location /svn>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath /public/Repositories
  SVNPathAuthz off

That will get you the maximum Apache performance. This problem affects
Apache on all platforms, but it was most noticeable on Windows.
