How many files or more importantly how many directories are in your
working copy?

How are you "clicking 'commit'" -- what GUI are you using?

You can run "svn commit" or other svn operations on just the subtree
of your working copy that you're actively working on. That way
Subversion won't have to spend time looking at other directories that
you already know are unchanged, and if something happens that
requires a cleanup, it will only require a cleanup of that subtree.

But cleaning up should not be needed frequently. I can't remember the
last time I've had to clean up. Months? Years? If you're having to
clean up much more frequently, then maybe there is something that can
be fixed. We just need more info about how you are getting into these
situations. More info about your client, like what OS you use and
what version of Subversion you have, could help.
