svn info takes a (relatively) long time to complete

When I first ran the "svn info" command on the root URL of a
it appeared to hang esp. since it wouldn't respond to a Ctrl+C and the
only way to stop it was to stop the process by Ctrl+Z and then send it
the KILL signal. That's when I noticed that it just takes a (long) time
to run to completion.

I am running two svnserve'd repositories on a Linux host:
    repo1 (20 revisions, on disk size = 221 Mb)
    repo2 (22 revisions, on disk size = 123 Mb)

Running "svn info" on the repository root URL takes a long time (longer
than I expected):

(from the same Linux host where the repositories are hosted)
svn info svn://hostname/repo1
    real 2m7.570s
svn info svn://hostname/repo2
    real 0m49.197s

(from a Windows 2000 system using the official 1.3.2 windows binaries
running under the Cygwin bash shell)
svn info svn://hostname/repo1
    real 3m24.047s
svn info svn://hostname/repo2
    real 3m8.643s

(from a Sun Solaris 9 system running 1.3.2 binaries built from source)
svn info svn://hostname/repo1
    real 8m7.362s
svn info svn://hostname/repo2
    real 8m55.268s

(from a Debian Linux system using prepackaged 1.3.2 binaries)
svn info svn://hostname/repo1
    real 6m29.555s
svn info svn://hostname/repo2
    real 7m7.509s

I am curious as to:
   (a) what happens on the client and server ends when this command
       is run that causes the command to complete in so much time?
   (b) whether this time taken is normal considering that
       "svn -v -R ls" and "svn -v log" don't take too much more time to
       run to completion?
   (c) whether this is a known/documented issue or even an issue at

The repositories are hosted on a Debian Linux system using subversion
1.3.2 built from source, and are being served using svnserve (launched
from inetd via "-i -r /svn"), with authz access control enabled.
