To really go farther with this, using the apache server you'll need to:

Provide the actual text of the svn client error message and also any
relevant messages from the apache logs. However, the "slower and
slower" description makes me wonder if there's some memomry usage
problem that eventually kills the server.

As a quick workaround, does using svnserve allow your checkout to work?

My understanding is svn doesn't officially support apache 2.2, or at
least there are some potential issues there. I don't have particular
knowledge about it though, so someone else will have to fill you in.

I only run svnserve.
