Check out to local disk, then directly copy that to a CIFS share. This
cuts the time for a 1 Gig working copy by a factor of 10. Maintaining
an upstream checkout repository that you can CIFS duplicate is also
feasible, but tricky if updates occur in the midst of copying.

CIFS is *not good* for Subversion checkouts of any significant size.
There is no available solution to this problem in the Subversion
