I have recreated proj2 repository and it encounters no delays. Also I
recreated proj1 without defining externals and it works fine. I defined externals in proj1 to
populate some directories from proj2. It worked fine yesterday. Today, checkout of
proj1 encounters huge delay (>30sec) if it wants to populate some of the
directories. With each checkout, different directories encounter the
delay. But this time, browsing proj1 and proj2 stays without delays. I'm
really desperate.
