Are you uploading completely new files? Unfortunately svn always
sends data as binary-diffs. In the case of adding a new file, it's
doing a binary diff against the empty file, which often takes longer
than just uploading the file itself.

This is not normal, nor expected. There's no reason it should ever
hang or crap out. Everything is streamy. Can you show us specific
