svn 1.4.2 hangs on directory with large number of files

Hey folks,

I've seen a few references in the archives to similar problems, but
only with older versions of Subversion. I wanted to ask if this is a
known problem of any sort, or if people have advice on workarounds I
could try.

Client Version: svn 1.4.2 on Linux (Ubuntu) and Mac OS X
Server Version: svn 1.4.2 on Solaris using Apache mod_dav_svn

I originally ran into trouble attempting to use svn import to import
nessus-plugins-2.2.9, which contains over 13000 files in the scripts/
sub-directory. I ran into a similar problem trying to checkout a
working copy and use svn add; svn ci - the commit hung after about 30
minutes of "Transmitting File Data."

I eventually got the import to work by doing it on the server box
itself using a file:// reference to the repository.

However, now when clients attempt to checkout that section of the
repository, their svn co or svn update hangs. The working copy files
don't actually get written until I kill the svn process with a ctrl-
c, so I"m guessing that svn is simply buffering all the working copy
updates (!?!?!?!?!?!) until completion. Any hints if this is
correct, and if so if I can tune this behavior in any way?

If it would be helpful I'd be happy to work up a full strace of these
issues in the current version and get more detail.

Thanks much for any feedback!
