No, it's because svn manipulates lots of small files in the .svn/ area.
  (It journals all of its actions, for example.) And NTFS is
tremendously slow at this, compared to Linux filesystems. For
operations that are working-copy intensive, windows seems to be about
2x slower in this regard. There's nothing we can do about it (other
than redesign all of the working copy code in svn 2.0.)
