No my friend, this is an issue on Linux and OSX too. The fact that you
don't have an issue is (in the grand scheme) irrelevant. Look through
archives for all the folks that are having issues on Linux filesystems.

None of my customers are on windows, and they are all having issues
with performance. I'm fairly sure that the Facebook dev that posted on
thread is not on Windows also.

I am patient but this Subversion performance with large wc's has been
an issue for years now. I repeat YEARS! And this is largely because of
people like you telling us that there is no issue and the SVN developers
working out there in remote locations with a single working copy on a
permanently cached laptop. Completely unrealistic..

My prediction is that 1.7 will not show up before this time next year.
a big change and the people driving this are very relaxed about
There were a number of things that were promised for 1.6 that didn't
the cut, who's to say this issue will get resolved?

How about a branch Burt? Leave us cynics to ourselves on that branch
while the rest of you wait for 1.7..
