It is (very slowly) generating the files in .svn\txt_base during that
time, but those are just copies of the newly checked-out files,
aren't they? I can't think of any reasonable way that copying a few
megs should take half an hour, even if it is a few megs distributed
through thousands of small files.

The more I think about it, the more it seems like the client library
must be doing something dumb while generating the base files that
hits the disk for each checked-out file, each time it generates a
base file or some such thing.

It is a problem for me at initial checkout, and when doing a cleanup.
