TortoiseSVN not useable for large SVN projects

        I have a problem using TortoiseSVN on a large SVN Repository

        What is my problem:

        1. I have imported the whole snapshot from an other system
(Dimensions) to SVN
        2. the Repository has a size of ~4G
        3. all files were imported in one step
        4. on windows I want to use the Repo-browser

        5. using the Show log option to look into the history

        6 opens a new window providing the log history able to do diffs
between different revisions

        7 the problem is the opening the Log Messages dialog is blocking
the whole application for

>>> ~1 minute <<<

        the reason is that in the 3 textarea from top all files were

>>> ~ 100000 files <<<

        which were in the same commit statement as this single file

                -> a whole repository scan is done

        this information is nice to to have for small repositories but a
killer for large repositories special if
        modification (like a initial load) were done in one single step

        for me this information is totally useless and the blocking is

                -> the maximum blocking timeout acceptable for me is

>>> ~ 3 seconds <<<

                -> what I can do to make the TortoiseSVN useable ?
