Just as a quick check, you might want to check how many log.* files you
have in the db directory of your depot. If you have lots of them, then
this is certainly a cause for svn slowing down.

Recent versions of svn/cvs2svn have a DB_LOG_AUTOREMOVE flag set in the
DB_CONFIG file which removes old ones, but I still come across depots
which accumulate the log history and impact performance.

It's a long shot...
