I gathered some more information: If I checked out proj1, created new
repository and commited files from proj1 without defining externals
property it worked fine. There is no delay browsing the new repository. Then
I've found that there is a repository, let's say proj2 (located at the same host as proj1) which
behaves really really slowly and it does not have any externals nor any other
properties defined.

Has anyone seen the repository which is relatively small (about 50revisions and
up to 100 files) which behave extremelly slow (each request has delay about 10sec to 1min)? This repository causing
the problem is used to store mostly binary files. Checkout of entire
repository has about 80MB which I find very small comparing to
some extremelly large projects (KDE:). It really scares me if my main project
repository can become, in the future, practically unusable after
performing some unknown steps.

Now, I'm trying to recreated proj2 repository in steps and I'm trying to
find what could cause the problem. Does anyone has any idea what could be
the problem?
