Did you do a bunch of separate checkouts from various directories to
create a Fraken-workspace?

I vaguely kinda sorta *think* that Subversion is smart enough to not
consider that as one workspace for obvious reasons. You might want to
try using 'externs' but that supposedly has a whole host of issues.

You can try doing a 'svn co -N' to only checkout particular sub-dirs
that you want. Ex:

If you want just
svn://server/repos/a/dir_with_a_hundred_sub_directories/ten and twenty,
you can
        svn co -N svn://server/repos/a
        cd a
        svn co -N
        cd dir_with_*
        svn co -N
        svn co -N
