svn up known issue?

We have a very large code repository that we've been evaluating with
Subversion. It's very sluggish, unacceptably so, but that's not the
particular issue I'd like to address.

What I wish to discuss is that 'svn up' doesn't clean up after itself
if user authentication times out. I have verified this behavior under
1.1.4 and 1.2.1 on Windows XP.

We are retrieving files via svn+ssh, from an FSFS repository on our
LAN. 'svn up' takes a good ten minutes (and 60M of memory) to run
before it finally asks for my password. What it's doing during this
time period, I cannot say, but it's surely not economizing on human
time by doing so. If I should unsurprisingly get bored or step away
from my computer, I may miss this prompt. At this point the clock is
ticking before the connection is lost, and by the time I type in my
password, it may be too late. In this case, I get a "Connection
closed unexpectedly" error, and running 'svn up' again tells me that:

svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)

In which case svn cleanup can take another 20 minutes to run
(consuming 100M of memory), after which I can look forward to another
10 minutes of twiddling before I can run update again.
